I a similar problem once - it actually turned out to be a fault in the
network cabling of UTP. Only 3 wires out of 4 were connected and it
worked for small files, but anything large killed it which was very
strange. I would have thought it would either work or not at all.

It could also be the bus mastering on a 3com 3c590 card if you have one.
Check ms support article Q139731 if you use the above network card at
