Works for me.  In my experience pulling data off the internet can be
problematic.  My first suggestion is try several times.  Then, consider the
site your pulling from may be having problems.  For example some sites are
updating download files and if you're pulling at the same time this may be a
problem.  Then, of course, it could be your connection.  Are you behind a
firewall?  If so you may need to contact the administrator for various kinds
of download blocks.

Hello, i don't even get FinancialData to work properly. Internet
is checked from within mathematica and is working, error below.

In[1]:= DateListPlot[FinancialData["GE", "Jan. 1, 2000"]]

During evaluation of In[1]:= FinancialData::dlfail: Internet download \
of data for FinancialData failed.  Use Help > Internet Connectivity... \
to test or reconfigure internet connectivity. >>

During evaluation of In[1]:= DateListPlot::ntdt: The first argument \
to DateListPlot is not a list of pairs of dates and real values or a \
list of lists of pairs of dates and real values. >>

Out[1]= DateListPlot[$Failed]
