    Failing to download 14.04

    I'm trying to download 14.04 32 bit however each time it gets to 771Gb, it stops and a "failed" message appears. Is there anything I can do or should I order the CD/DVD? I want to install on a laptop. Thanks.

    Perhaps wget might be more robust than a browser download:

    Code:
    wget http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso
    or a torrent even, copy this and paste into Transmission:

    Code:
    http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso.torrent
    Lots of choices .

    Thanks but wget is terribly slow for me (will take over 4 hours to download) and I don't understand how to use the torrent. Better order the CD/DVD.

    Certainly buying is an option, I see from your profile you are from Australia and you can order a DVD for $3:

    Good to see a fellow Australian btw

    When I used the link in andrew.46 post in Firefox I was prompted to open it in transmission which started the download using torrent automatically
