Most probably a dead torrent.

Try another torrent.

what torrent client are you using?
I dont understand why you are using a download manager, the bt client will handle the piecing together of all the file fragments, and have no need for a download manager at all - the bit torrent client is it's own download manager in itself, and will work for broadband OR dialup

as Speedy says - probably a dead torrent

Popular BT sites/trackers can/do get shut down.

could be a lack of 'seeders'
which makes it almost as good as dead.
Also some torrents MAY be incomplete(if seeders drop off & its peers only) , so you may never get the whole file in that case & the download will then be quite
intermittent

A bittorrent program will show you whats going on, no of 'seeders', status of 'trackers' (try utorrent perhaps)
