Not sure if you have tried to download from adobe FTP site lately, however it is exceedingly slow (23kbps slow!). I have this afternoon, just worked out a small hack that makes it a lot faster… so far it seems to work (for the three adobe reader patches I’ve tried anyway).
1. Find the file on ftp://ftp.adobe.com/
2. Copy the url of the file (including the exe, zip, etc) that you want to download.
3. Replace the first part of the URL (ftp://ftp.adobe.com/) with http://ardownload.adobe.com/
E.g. ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/11.x/11.0.07/misc/AdbeRdrUpd11007_incr.msp becomes http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/11.x/11.0.07/misc/AdbeRdrUpd11007_incr.msp
