hey friends!!
i am a MBA student .WE have Wi-Fi network in our college and hostel but the problem is dat network is firewalled and network/admin has disabled downloading of files having .exe,.rar,.zip,.mp3 extensions.
some specific websites are also blocked but download.com is still opening but i am unable to download softwares from it.

i have tried it using diffrrent web browsers also but still it does'nt work as it is firewalled.

First: You need to talk with your college's network/admin to see what liberties on downloads they may grant/give you.

Second: Per the Bleeping Computer Forum's Rules.
