Thanks for the reply. Do you think the internet problems could be on the ISP's part or is that unlikely? My computer is connected through a router but I just tried it on another computer that's plugged in directly and the same problem occurred. Incidentally, I had forgotten to set my computer to a static IP, but I just did it and nothing changed. I'll set the other comp to a static IP eventually to test it but I'm not sure if it'll make a difference.
I suppose you're right about DCC not being ideal (I normally use bit torrent), but there are a few files that are easier to get through IRC and I like having the option open.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I had also tried a couple other files and got the same problem so I doubt it's a damaged file or something of the sort.
