If an HTTP connection (via a web browser) stalls or is not of the speed you desire, you may try using wget.
You can download and install wget for Windows from wget.techknight.com
If you're using MacOS X 10.3, you can download wget from www.statusq.org/archives/2005/02/22/610/
If you're using Linux, at a root prompt:
wget -c http://[user]:[password]@ydl.net/downloads/enhanced/iso/[iso name] [ENTER]... where [user] is your username, [password] is your password, and [iso name] is the name of the YDL image you desire to download.
