Problems with setup.exe

It appears to try to download the mirror list from, but fails.  The following is a copy of the execution of the setup.exe program.  Any help would be appreciated.  

This is the Cygwin setup utility (v1.45.2.3),
built on Jun  8 2000 12:08:45.

Use this program to install the latest version of the Cygwin Utilities
from the Internet.

Alternatively, if you already have already downloaded the appropriate files
to the current directory (and subdirectories below it), this program can use
those as the basis for your installation.

If you are installing from the Internet, please run this program in an empty
temporary directory.
