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
