Thank you for pointing out the issue.

But to me the problem is still the same.

Are you sure your DNS-server picked up the changes/that your machine
is not still trying to use ipv6 connection?

(I know here was written before that no ipv6 stuff is used, but it was
also pointed out before that newer versions of Windows enable teredo
by default, and that tunnels ipv6 over regular ipv4 connections,
without the need to configure stuff by the user). Can you access ?

I tested a couple of minutes ago.
I checked both 3.3.4 and 3.4.3 via the Supportex mirror, again.

The fact that I encounter this issue only(!) with the Supportex mirror, and
with not any(!) other download, seems to point to some weird issue with the
Supportex mirror.

Well - people have confirmed that the server doesn't support ipv6
contrary to what the AAAA DNS entry suggested.

But still, I cannot yet rule out some involvement from my internet security
application, even though such an involvement would be very peculiar, as the
issue only(!) occurs with the Supportex mirror, and with no other mirror and
with not any other download.

please flush your DNS cache & use nslookup to query for a ipv6 address
to be sure

nslookup -type=AAAA

must not return a result.

Other than that, a traceroute might help


PS: I also cannot confirm that the server doesn't report size or
doesn't accept byte-ranges/resume:
