Hi samuel karki! You can manually download Gradle and link to it, but you shouldn't need to. Can you give us more details about your issue? What about Android Studio is taking lots of time, and what error message are you seeing?

Every time I opened Android Studio for first time it start to download gradle (you know) but It tells connection lost every time and i am tired of downloading it. I do try again but same problem so I know my connection is poor. So, i want to know way to install it manually.

Okay, I see. I'd recommend letting it install automatically, but you can do it manually. Start by trying the recommendation in this other Forum post:

so within Android Studio I went to File >> Invalidate Caches / Restart and then clicked "Invalidate and Restart"

If that doesn't help, you can try doing it manually like some of the answers in this StackOverflow question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26254526/manually-install-gradle-and-use-it-in-android-studio
