    OK, with you now, the Support software download is notoriously unreliable, many attempts are not uncommon, very slow download speeds are also frequent. Be patient with it. It can take hours so wait until it finishes, or fails with an error.

     

    You can try going to System Preferences>Network>Advanced>Proxies, uncheck everything in the protocol box and try with and without Passive Mode checked (below the protocol box)

    I suggest you read some of the many posts about this, it is a slow and tedius process but it is the only way, take your computer to a different location, connect with a cable, make a new location on your machine.

    It really is not an OS bug and won't be fixed that way. The servers supplying the Support Software have been bad for some time, but most people persevere through it, I have downloaded it in 45 minutes, and also in hours, it's a crapshoot.

     

    Also please search this forum, there is a posted link to an alternative (unsupported) download. Use at your own risk.

    You're reading the wrong things, this has nothing to do with OS in use.

     

    Dan, I am out now, if you wish to retrograde I will not help.

     

    Good luck.
