    For some reason the down-loader did not work for me.

    I investigated and found that are network used Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 Public DNS resolves.

    Server: [8.8.8.8]
    Address: 8.8.8.8

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: a1809.g.akamai.net
    Addresses: 206.248.168.169
    206.248.168.171
    Aliases: beta.unity3d.com
    beta.unity3d.com.edgesuite.net

    Server: [8.8.4.4]
    Address: 8.8.4.4

    The IP address's are for Residential xDSL modems with Teksavvy Solutions which happens to be are network provider. Unsure why Google DNS would directed us to a xDSL IP address from my providers IP pool.

    I then tried using Level3 DNS resolves. These worked as shown below. I then modified are network settings to use resolver1.level3.net and resolver.level3.net fixed all machines.

    Server: resolver1.level3.net
    Address: 209.244.0.3
