Win8 build 8220
dashboard -> add role & feature -> select .NET Framework 3.5 Features

it says "insteallation started on machineBlah"

then failed with

"The request to add or remove feature on the specified server failed
installation of one or more roles, role servies or features failed - the source files could not be downloaded

use the /source option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. The file location should be either the root directory of a mounted image or a component store that has the windows side-by-side directory as an immediate subfolder."

my server has internet connection.

Closing as external ...not related to connect. Recommend visiting http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/ and participate in discussions there.

I had the same problem, and I resolved by installed the feature via Power shell using this command dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /all /source:D:\sources\sxs where D es the driver path where Windows setup files are.

This is the Connect site for issues with Connect itself. Perhaps you were looking for the Windows 8 site?
