Hi bonezz777,

Connection times out if the download (file) is being received below the server's threshold because it is taking too long. This could be caused because the server is overloaded, your Internet connection is slow, or overall Internet is slow.

A common fix for this problem is to use a third-party download manager that can monitor and if needed resume a download from where it stopped. I have been using "Orbit" for this purpose. You can download "Orbit" by clicking here.

Also, I would like to recommend upgrading your connection to broadband because it is always good to download huge files using a faster connection.

Do reply with results.
