I don't know which network department you work in at your ISP, but in
this ISP's "network department", we *never* disclaim the possibility of
having an issue until the problem has been resolved, and we know
*exactly* _what_ it was, and _where_ it was (yes, I'm a little sensitive
to blind claims that "it's not our fault" ;)

Both work here:

# fetch -4
7.2.002                                       100% of 1462  B 9327 kBps

# wget -4
2009-07-24 21:52:01 (113 MB/s) - `' saved [1462/1462]

However, it seems as though is IPv6 enabled, but both fetch
and wget time-out when trying to reach it over IPv6. eg:

# wget -6

Are you IPv6 ready? If not, do you have v6 enabled in some fashion that
could be interfering with proper Internet communication?
