Why is my internet download manager not working anymore?

Akshay Kumar July 25, 2011

My internet download manager stopped working recently. I tried installing it again (newer version), but that also didn’t work. I also tried to use DAP, but it wasn’t accelerating the downloads.

I could download faster in Chrome than it. In IDM, when I start downloading, it writes Connecting, but after that nothing. The request times out after some time.

My friend is also having the same problem. I live in a university hostel where the internet is provided by the university via WLAN. My other friends are using IDM and it’s working fine.

Please help! I cant figure it out.

    Hello, Akshay. I got u a link contain the lates IDM


    how to use the software:

    1) Set up the Software fully
    2)run "Unregister.IDM.reg", [remove all the registry file for old serial.]
    3)save the crack files in directory C:Program FilesInternet Download Manager   or any directory that u saved ur IDM software
    4) run the registry file of the crack

    Ensure about the proxy setting, university usually renews their proxy to reduce the net usage in side campus.

    You can use this extension(FlashGot as core) to make direct calls to an external downloader

    1: Go to Customize and control google chrome
    2: Tools
    3: Extensions
    4:Get more extensions
    5: Download and install Download assistant
    6: Go back to extensions
    7: You will see download assistant clip options
    8: Slect IDM
    9: Save & close

        sometime illegitimate copy of IDM can do this possible IDM server detect this and blocks, is like the trial version, after sometime will stop working.

        you may have used wrong proxy server address in the idm (in Download>Options>Proxy tab )
