Check your wget configuration files to see if a bad timeout limit has been set. If you have a file called /home/user/.wgetrc then check that. If you don't have /home/user/.wgetrc then look at /etc/wgetrc. To understand the timeout values look at the wget man pages:

man wget

and take a look at the explanations for:

--timeout
--dns-timeout
--connect-timeout
--read-timeout

You should start a new thread for your second problem.
