[R] problem with mirror selection

Dear R People:

I'm having trouble with selecting a mirror to download packages.

When I select the location, R just sits.  When I try to cancel
the program, it never quits.

Has anyone else run into this, please?  It only happens on my
laptop, not my desktop.  My inclination is to say that it might be
a problem with a firewall, but I thought I would check here as

R Version 2.2.1 Windows.

Thanks in advance!
