Whenever I try to download files I get the error 'Failed - Network Error'
0
Hey there,
Whenever I try to download files I get an Error 'Failed - Network Error' It's not my internet I don't think because some files download and some don't.
If anyone knows how to fix this issue, please tell me!

Thanks

Hi,
 
What AV and Firewall do you use?

The only firewall I have is the Windows one, although I have already tried to disable it and try but it still doesn't work. :(

Thanks

Hi again Max,
 
NETWORK_FAILED mostly is the result of 3rd party software and apps. It can be caused by the firewall of your modem/router too. Do you know how to check the settings on that device(s)?
 
Chrome also has a page with which you can check for software conflicts. Just copy and paste it into the address bar. And see if something's highlighted with a color.
chrome://conflicts/
 
If that doesn't give more information, you could try updating your system time or seeing if Chrome Beta works better.

Can you give detail to how that person was able to download it for you as I am experiencing the same problem that you were. I usually don't have a problem downloading anything, this is the first time getting the message "Failed - Network error".

Never mind. I tried downloading through a different browser (Firefox) and it worked.
