downloading updates on dial up
I have dial up and with the being extremely slow, downloads tend to take
upwards of 6 hours. In the middle of such downloads, I'm randomly kicked of
by my provider. Is there some sort of download manager that manages windows
updates? Possibly for free?

thanks in advance

RE: downloading updates on dial up
Hello ZG,

AutoUpdate--the native automatic update mode of WU/AU uses the BITS service
(Automatically resume file transfers after network disconnects and computer
restarts). This service is specifically designed, as I understand it to
minimize bandwidth impact.

<http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa362827.aspx>


Do you have automatic updates turned on--for Windºws?

I think the right strategy for a dialup user is just to ignore the update
process--let the BITS service do its thing--dial in when you want, hang up
when you want. BITS should use unused bandwidth when it can, resume, etc,
until it gets the file in.


I hope this post is helpful.

Let us know how it works ºut.
