axel

This is the place to ask for how to use software that is (or isn't) included in the various wdlxtv flavours. Questions about software such as rtorrent, NZBGet, sshfs, curlftpfs, ssh, telnet, etc.

Axel tries to accelerate HTTP/FTP downloading process by using multiple connections for one file. It can use multiple mirrors for a download. Axel has no dependencies and is lightweight, so it might be useful as a wget clone on byte-critical systems.

can someone port axel for wdlxtv-live?

That's actually a good starting point for getting into cross-compiling, because it's really easy to compile.
Anyways, try this binary, haven't tested it atall because my WDTV is in some drawer...
