If you cancel out of the download manager dialog box, you should see a link to download it with your browser.

In Eclipse it just errors out and there is no cancel with download.  If I click on the link in a browser it just redirects me to the main bb android page.  What I need is a way to download it to a thumb drive on another pc and install it from there.

Ah, you mean the downloader built-in to Eclipse? I think an Eclipse forum would be a better place to ask that, as it's not BlackBerry specific.

Re: Download Blackberry plug-in for Eclipse behind firewall

I too had similar issues. I followed following steps:

 

-download plugin on a computer which has direct internet access

-copy entire eclipse folder to a flash drive & paste to your target computer

-open windows>preferences & set android sdk location if it defers from previous computer
