Please help!

I have 2 Linux boxes both connected to the same adsl router: is running (B)LFS 5 is Mandrake 9.1

In general the network connection on the LFS box seems fine, however when 
trying to download the Java SDK from (in fact any download link 
at I get connection timeouts.

If I try the same thing on the Mandrake box it works fine.

I have tried downloading with Konqueror, Links the text browser and passing 
the URL to wget and they all timeout. Here is the output to wget:


           => `Welcome.jsp?StoreId=22'
[root at sprakes /home/paul/downloads/traceroute-1.4a12]# done.
Connecting to[]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 302 Moved Temporarily
           => `Welcome.jsp?StoreId=22&LMLoadBalanced='
Resolving done.
Connecting to[]:80... failed: Connection timed 


So, what could be the difference between the two machines?

Cheers, Paul.
