Well, if you're using Linux, then try downloading using wget. It will 
retry and can also restart a partial download if possible for the 
server in question. It's a complex application, so you should consult 
the man page, but for basic uses, a simple invocation will suffice:

% wget HTTP_or_FTP_URL

Curl is a similar utility, but I know little about it and cannot 
specifically recommend it--I stick to wget for all my scripted / 
CLI-drive downloading needs.
