Download 2008 R2 Beta

I have a wierd one. When I try to download the Server 2008 R2 Beta, it gets between 1% and 2% done, then tells me the download is finished. Obviously, my 15-30 k file is useless. I can download anything else, including other products from microsoft. I see no errors in my logs, and the corporate firewall shows nothing except a dropped TCP connection. Anyone have any ideas?
I have tried both IE and Firefox.

Do you have a Torrent downloader you use.  I would try downloading the file within a specific program rather then a browser and see what happens.

I would try bitcomet or Vuze.

You can just use them to download any file like you would normally in a browser.

It turned out to be my firewall at work, still don't know why( it doesn't block anything else, weird). I did find bitcomet to be a useful program in general, and I was able to perform the download from home.
