##
## Hello all:
## I'm sending you this
## BUG report: wget.
## WGET kills internet connection when invoked from
## WINDOWS
##
## This problem does not appear when invoked from
## Linux or BeOS (I have tested it).
##
## I have probed many versions. I started with that
## one included with JIGDO for windows, but same
## problem appears with many others, including last
## one on unxutils.sourceforge.net
## I will post this one to unxutils, also. They should
## have a more-windowish approach to the bug.
##
## Lines with ## are comments
## Lines without ## are shell (COMMAND.COM) typed
## input and program output

    Forget it. Got no response from wget formum but, as most
    people runs wget ok on their computers, I'm sure this is
    related with my router configuration. I'll keep using wget from
    Linux or BeOS.

    bought a new router, now it works. I will end monitoring this,
    so you could mark it as "closed"
