It seems that the download servers cannot handle a slow connection. Boinc says project may be down after a gap of 3 seconds. pinging times out when seti servers stop responding.
Boinc is requesting more work before it can complete the downloads of the first set. I seem to now have 3 sets of downloads from seti timing out.
Aborting dl and trying later gives same result.

In Australia dsl2+ capped to 64k dl due to excessive usage.

I think the downloadserver listens at; and I do get some timeouts, but most of the time more than one ping packet get through.
