Rubygems(.org) timing out all the time

Why is that nowdays, when using rubygems 1.3.6, I get following error
most of the time when trying to install or update gems:

ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
timed out (http://rubygems.org/gems/gemname-version.gem)

Are there some problems with rubygems.org’s servers?

Please provide the complete output of the gem install command with “–
debug -V” options

Also, since the gem is public, do not hide the gem name and version.

Help us help you.

Can you do wget on the gem?

wget http://rubygems.org/gems/activesupport-2.3.5.gem

From here I get this:

It may be a issue from your ISP/Firewall and Amazon CloudFront

Wget works ok.

It seems that I have same problem as Evan D.
(http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/204146).

I switched my VirtualBox (I run Kubuntu under Win 7) network adapter
from NAT to Bridged, and everything works now. Though I don’t know what
the problem was, this seems to solve it :S

Six years later, this work for me. NAT doesnt let me update nor install.
Thank you

ah, forgot --debug.

$ gem install --debug -V rails
