wget wont download ??

hi there,

i'm trying to get my wget to download a file but for some reason it wont

[root@fedora bash]# wget
=> `phpldapadmin-0.9.7.tar.gz'
Connecting to[]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [text/html]

[ <=> ] 2,254 --.--K/s

16:31:06 (3.94 MB/s) - `phpldapadmin-0.9.7.tar.gz' saved [2,254]

that is what happens all in the space of a few seconds, but as you can see from below the file is only 4k

[root@fedora bash]# ls -ls
total 4
4 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2254 Nov 1 16:31 phpldapadmin-0.9.7.tar.gz
