No, I don't think so.

Install from CD ?

No it doesn't.  I think you'd just have to track it down a bit more;
compare TCP dump output on another machine.  You'll need to determine
if the blame lies with busybox (which provides wget, which is what we
use to download) or the kernel.  I doubt it's a kernel problem because
a *lot* of people would be hitting it.  So it's all rather mysterious
to me.
