How to setup Android Studio to work completely offline?

I have very slow bandwidth, so I'm trying to keep all the required files on local machine to set the Android studio completely offline. When I click on create

New Project
it always tries to download a file named gradle-1.6-bin.zip which I downloaded and tried to install locally via plugin manager but it gives me an error:

fail to load plugin descriptor from file gradle-1.6-bin.zip

So what other files do I need to download and how do I install them properly to work offline with Android Studio.
