If your modem is disconnected from your Internet service provider (ISP)while you are downloading a file from the Internet, the file downloaddoes not automatically resume from the point at which it was interruptedwhen you reconnect to your ISP. You must start the file download again.
The versions of Internet Explorer listed above do not have the capabilityto resume downloading a file from the point at which the download processwas interrupted. For file download to continue from the point at which itwas interrupted, both the Internet server and Internet Explorer wouldhave to support this functionality. The Internet server would require theability to insert file recovery information into the download stream, andInternet Explorer would require the ability to compare the attributes ofthe file that was not completely downloaded with the recovery informationprovided by the server.
