FYI, I again mirrored this to iBiblio for FreeDOS. But I haven't tried it (under QEMU or VBox) yet. BTW, the bug in VBox networking for DOS has been fixed in latest 6.0.2.

Which WGET are you using? I was sometimes using the latest build from Michael Kostylev, but since I never verified its sources fully, I never mirrored it for us. (Things like that are usually hard or impossible to rebuild without a miracle.)

And here's my point. He's removed it from his server. Granted, I still have it locally, but still ... that's a bit surprising (but only barely). N.B. He still seems to have wget.exe (from 2017?) but no full install .7z anymore nor even any sources, very odd.

In other news, he does appear to have a build of latest Curl 7.63.0 (which is pointed to on Curl's own official download page). I haven't tried it, but just FYI, it's here. Also, previous builds of Curl didn't work very well for me, so I preferred Wget, but YMMV.

EDIT: This Curl build seems to work correctly, in limited testing, under QEMU 2.5.0 atop Xenialpup (aka, 64-bit PuppyLinux).
