Unhappy Cannot sustain downloads of slax or fermi linux

I have been having trouble completing downloads of SLAX Live CD, and Fermi linux on multiple different boxes running Windows XP for several days. it is at work, we are a service provider so the network on our end couldn't be the problem (we have 80mbps download in here).
they get to like 80% coming down slower than 200kbps and then the window just disappears.

To clarify, i have been able to download knoppix on this machine,, the whole 700mb, and ubuntu and other distros but i am not able to pulldown fedora, fermilinux, or slax, and have not been for days.

You have a great, big, fat pipe for plenty of download (DL) bandwidth.

I envy you

But your problem is maybe using win to manage a DL. Although it should "just work". We can't really help you here (because we are mostly, running linux).

Where are you trying to DL the distro from?

Maybe the site is broken. There are many alternatives.

If you have DL'd knoppix, try booting from that ( first, check if your employer allows this sort of behaviour from "work" ), and then asking knoppix to DL the files for you. Maybe you'll have success.

If not, post here again, and we'll all do our best to help you.

Welcome to LQ!
