Hello
I am trying to download the dvd image of dapper drake 6.06.
It starts well, but after sometime the download stops, altough the download manager seem to keep trying, but the download % does not change. this happened all the links i tried.
i have no internet connection at home, i download images at workplace and burn them.
have anyone tried to download dvd image of ubuntu dapper drake? need some suggestion on this.

It must be something to do with your work, I started the download about 30mins ago and have about 1.5GB.
You could always try a download manager with resume like prozilla.

I think it probably is something to do with your office network yeah, but it's hard to tell what, exactly, it is.
The link i used to download the DVD ISO was http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/c...6-dvd-i386.iso
