"Connection closed at byte x" means that the remote end closed the
connection while wget was still expecting to receive more data (as
judged by Content-Length or the like). Note that in cases where the
server doesn't tell us how much data to expect, you would never see this
message, since in that case there's no way to know whether the server
closed "early", or if it closed because it was properly finished sending

"Read error at byte x/y (Connection timed out)." means that we simply
stopped receiving packets from the remote server (not even a
connection-closing packet), and the connection eventually timed out.
