Re: [Rd] Problem installing MinGW 5.0.3: Your internet connection seems to be not permitted or dropped out!

Their automatic installer is a bit flaky. You may need to install the packages manually. And as Marc pointed out, 5.0.3 is no longer the latest. I haven't tried 5.1.2 yet, but I'll probably update soon.
