Use Ctrl-X in the downloader to see what file you might be stuck on. If it's shaderCache.hogg you might try deleting that and starting the download again. It is darned slow out there. If your tracert results show you going through Cogent networks then that's the problem right there.

Here's my trace, starting at hop #3:

Not sure why it goes bad during the transition from BrightHouse (RoadRunner) to Cogent, but it does so in a big way.
