    take out the -o and it should work, -o is expecting another argument after it, which is the link, which is why it isn't working, read the man page for wget

    that link works for me with wget, do you have a proxy or anything to connect to the internet?

    Are you sure you have wget installed? What is the output of:

    Code:
    which wget

    wget is installed

    i have wget on my computer
    this is the output on my shell
    Code:
    [ahmed@localhost ~]$ which wget
    /usr/bin/wget
    [ahmed@localhost ~]$ wget
    wget: missing URL
    Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...
    
    Try `wget --help' for more options.
    [ahmed@localhost ~]$


    all what i wanna to do is to download the realplayer using wget , i think that the problem is taken a copy of the URL of button on web page may need some other option other than taken from ordinary URL link.

    if the wget work with somebody . check if the downloaded realplayer is 7.5 MB

    That address forwards to another address which may be causing the problem. Try

    Code:
     wget http://software-dl.real.com/17c69a76a6c672690e05/unix/RealPlayer11GOLD.bin

    I had the same issue. The problem is the questionmark in your query. The solution is to enclose the url in single quotes.

    (and as mentioned previously, your use of -o is faulty)

    My first post here does not allow me to post links so I can't write your exact statement, but to give you the gist write something like this and it should work:
    wget 'url'
