Does the version of wget you are using support large files? (> 4GB) I faced a similar problem a couple of years ago and upgrading wget to the most recent version solved it.

Try "downloading" a dvd iso from a local machine (say localhost running apache) If it fails, try upgrading your client.

257M??? Why other iso files has similar problem....

At first glance, I think that my wireless router was putting a limit, but then I connect directly to my ISP... I'm not behind a proxy (well, I don't if my ISP has one) but it's a recent problem, please could say me what's wrong?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think routers operate at a much lower level and don't know anything about files and their sizes.
