    Download problem - Kali Linux i386 iso fails to complete

    Hello,
    I'm having difficulty downloading the Kali Linux i386 iso. I've tried 8 times with different arrangements and the download has stopped and recorded as 'download complete' at different amounts from 350Mb to 2.2Gb.
    I've tried Win 8, 7 and XP. Strangely the Win download manager also thought the download was complete - odd.
    The process appears normal, except slow (2 hrs on ADSL2+)
    Anyone any thoughts?
    Cheers,
    Terry

    Are you using any download software?..I strongly suggest to avoid it is so, and download from the Kali linux download page.

    I tried with and without download software. The downloads seemed to be being cut off at the server rather than this end?

    Finished up downloading the mini-iso and working from there. It worked well.

    Cheers,

    Torrents all the way. I suggest, using uTorrent, and grab the torrent file for the download. It's often faster than any http download, and it also (usually) never fails.
