I was downloading HP software for my all in one from HP's site. It went right to the file download window, but it said download time 6 hours give or take. I have dialup which works fine for most things for me.
So I went to my library which has free wireless. I signed on, went to the HP site and click on the link to download and nothing for 45 seconds to a minute then IE goes to the cannot find page window.
There are no restrictions for downloads according to several librarians and I have downloaded other software there w/o trouble previously. HP staff seemed just as confused, the chat guy sent me the link to the same page and it didn't work. My battery ran low so I came home.
What might the problem be?

Nameserver timeout. Happens to me with Hughsnet all the time. "Cannot find the page, yada yada, whine, whine." Click on refresh, swear a blue streak and "Oh! I found the site!" If I could reach through the connection and slap the Hughsnet nameservers, I would.
