I am new to ubuntu and attempting to download it to my desktop (wired) PC so I can create a CD so I can install it on my laptop PC (which is basically nonfunctional). Although I have a fast Internet connection, this download is moving at 72kbps or so. I've tried turning off the firewall, resetting the modem and router, rebooting the computer, and nothing works.
What else should I try, or is this really going to take nearly 3 hours?
Thanks in advance.
