Hummm.... have you tried checking your firewall yet??? It might be causeing some problems with the connections &/or file transfer.

You could also try to maybe go down one notch on your modem connection speed.Sometimes the highspeed connections have problems with bad connections via your phone lines.
Sorry about this but I forgot to mention that you could also try and reduce your transmit and receive buffer.Hope it helps.
Practise what you preach.

Try going into your internet explorer properties and checking the security setting, my be set too high and then downloads are disabled. I can't advise for Aol, as I haven't used Aol since it came on floppy diskettes.

Try these settings.
If you use proxy make sure its set for ftp as well as http
if not make sure your firewall is allowing ftp connections. ( alot of downloads use ftp)
If your using aol try your internal aol settings.
Also note that if your phone number is withheld when you dial sometimes aol plays funny man and doesn't allow e-mailing or ftp.

Try Spybot. It may find something causing the problem

I had the same problem about a month ago, somone may be flooding the server you are on.

Just a simple advice:
Try to connect any available ftp server on the net using a shell/MSCMD (e.g. ftp://ftp.anchorcon.com )
If you don't even get the login input on screen that's mean that all FTP packets are dropped somewhere (ACL or firewall).

Check if it works on an other server.
This one is free (accept for you're local telephone ticks) and legal...
