I'm just trying to get started with LaTeX on Windows 64 bit, but have quickly hit an unexpected roadblock. I first tried TeX Live, but the download is very slow and would always fail before completing. I tried several mirrors, but the result was the same. I tried several different browsers, but the result was the same. I tried continuing the download when it stopped, over and over again until it finally completed, but the binary was corrupt.
I decided to switch to MiKTeX, but have been having exactly the same issues there. However, it seems like both options may be hosted on the same infrastructure...?
Can anyone confirm whether the Windows installers are downloading for them? For example, this one. If not, any advice on how to proceed?
EDIT: after 4 attempts, I finally got the net installer to download. But of course, it just tries to download the full package from the same source, so it also eventually fails:
