Any mirrors for DD-WRT source code downloads?

    I'm stuck with a dialup modem Internet connection, and I can only get 86Mb of the 90Mb file before my ISP's timer does a disconnect on me... Grrrrr.

    The www.dd-wrt.com downloads are not restartable.

    Are there any other sites where the source code can be found, except with a restartable transfer? Either ftp or http would be fine, but the restart capability is essential.

    Thanks, but I run Linux (and use "wget -c ..." to restart an interrupted download).

    As noted, the problem is that www.dd-wrt.com is NOT restartable. That is because of the way the files are served up, which makes it impossible for their software to seek to a starting location other than the beginning of the file.

    Hence, a regular ftp archive or an http server that sends the file itself rather than invoking a program to serve it is needed.

    How about publishing it on Bittorrent? Would save Brainslayer's bandwith, and make it more accessible for people with slower connections.
