Thanks, Ricky/Riccardo,

As my internet connection was (and still is) IPv4 only, I disabled IPv6 in
Windows network properties, years ago.
Some minutes ago I enabled it to test the Supportex mirror download, to see
if it made any difference.
Then I disabled it and tested again (both times Vista with IE9).
No difference.
Both times it took about three minutes(!!) for the Internet Explorer
download manager popup to appear, offering to Run/Save/Cancel the download.
This while trying any other mirror the Internet Explorer download manager
appears instantly(!)

It is most likely the internet connection the mirror is on or its getting swamped with requests probably. I am inclined to say that the NIC is the bottle neck. I bet that it is most likely a 100 Mbit network card which is bottled necked with requests.
