Question File not downloading in linux terminal


Hello,
I have been trying to download files in linux using "wget" command. However, every time i try to download, the connection is timed out. As an example, while trying to download a page from wikipedia, following message appeared.
"#wget en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base_station
--2013-01-23 14:19:47-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base_station
Resolving en.wikipedia.org... 208.80.154.225, 2620:0:861:ed1a::1
Connecting to en.wikipedia.org|208.80.154.225|:80... failed: Connection timed out.
Connecting to en.wikipedia.org|2620:0:861:ed1a::1|:80... failed: Network is unreachable.
"

I don't understand what the problem is??

looks like you're not able to reach it at all. are you proxied? Maybe you need to define an http_proxy variable to go via an intermediate system?

Can you reach that site with Firefox or whatever web browser you are using?
Can you ping the sites you are trying to use wget to download from? For example, post the output of:
Code:
ping 208.80.154.225
This is the web address you have in your post.

Do you have a software firewall running?

And welcome to the LQ forums!

Hello Chris,
Thank you for you reply but i am not proxied.

Hello tommcd,
I am trying to download via a terminal. I tried to ping the site before as well and the ping request was successful. As you want me to provide you an output, I tried again and the result was like this:

# ping 208.80.154.225

Your ping times are slower than mine, but this may be because your internet connection is slower than mine.
For comparison, here is my ping times for that IP address:
Code:
bash-4.2$ ping 208.80.154.225
PING 208.80.154.225 (208.80.154.225) 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from 208.80.154.225: icmp_req=2 ttl=53 time=18.2 ms
64 bytes from 208.80.154.225: icmp_req=3 ttl=53 time=16.3 ms
...
^C
--- 208.80.154.225 ping statistics ---

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.339/23.851/117.661/21.362 ms
Try running the wget command with the -c option and with the IP address in the command like this:
Code:
wget -c 208.80.154.225
Here is what I get when I run the above command:
Code:
bash-4.2$ wget -c 208.80.154.225
--2013-01-23 06:33:39--  http://208.80.154.225/
