Sometimes it’s better to just let your download manager do the downloading than Google’s own installer.  I was in such a predicament until I found out that Google does provide an “alternate” installer.  You may download the standalone installer of Chrome via http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?standalone=1 (note the “standalone=1”).

Alternate Google Chrome installer

If you’re having problems using the standard Google Chrome installer at http://www.google.com/chrome, you can try the alternate installer available from the link below to download the latest version of the browser.

This alternate installer doesn’t require network connectivity to install Google Chrome.  Once installed, Google Chrome will attempt to automatically update whenever it detects that a newer version of the browser is available.  However, your network configuration may prevent the browser from updating properly.  We recommend that you bookmark this page and come back periodically to manually download newer versions of Google Chrome. That way, you can be sure to receive important security fixes and feature improvements.  You can see if updates are available by visiting the Google Chrome releases blog.
