OS X Lion server install "Can't download Server Essentials because of a network problem." Error

I recently downloaded and tried to install OS X Lion server on my mac mini which acts...as a server, and when configuring it kept coming up with "Can't download Server Essentials because of a network problem." Rebooting no joy, resetting the routers/modem no joy, google brought up this https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3189925?start=0&tstart=0  for some reason best known to apple if you create a new network location, copy your settings over and delete the old one it works fine, this fix oddly enough has been used to fix weird network issues before.
