Error downloading prerequisites for SharePoint 2010

When installing SharePoint 2010 (which I am doing now), if you get an error when installing the prerequisites that it couldnt download the components, make sure your firewall is configured to allow it to download.

I don't know which firewall rule specifically blocks the installer, so I just turned the firewall off, let it finish downloading and installing all prerequisites, and then turned the firewall back on. Done!
