ok
you said, you are trying to download java

have you tryed to download any other file from web ?? does those halt aswell ?? or its just the java ??

while you are downloading, have you check if your internet link is allright or not by doing ping to any outside address

what i am tryign to explain is:

you started your download

then start a ping to any outside address such as

ping www.google.co.uk

see if you internet speed is continuous or there is some breaking i meant, time out ..
