Trying to get Raspbmc installed. I use the windows installer to flash the sd card. Good. Next, I start up the board. It goes through the network install. Takes about 10 minutes, then resets. Ok, still good I think.

After the reset the "R" logo appears on my screen, and after a few minutes I get a tiny text message that says Update failed - wget and it just hangs like that forever.

How can I solve this problem?
