I'm trying to download alsa firmware drivers specified in Step 2 of the below page to get my Tascam US-122 usb interface working on my Ubuntu 12.10 :

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TASCAM_US-122

When I try
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/firmw...1.0.19.tar.bz2

I get the below Connection refused error :

Connecting to ftp.alsa-project.org (ftp.alsa-project.org)|77.48.224.243|:21... failed: Connection refused.

Is this ftp site down?
