wget and the big files (600-700 MB)


I tried wget to download an ISO file. The problem is that though I download it, when I checked with md5sum, I realized it was corrupt. So, is wget capable of downloading such big files, and if it is, how should I configure it?
To avoid any "RTFM" , here's my configuration file(~/.wgetrc):
Code:
tries = 0                                                                                                                                                         
waitretry = 10                                                                                                                                                    
continue = on                                                                                                                                                     
dir_prefix = /home/username/wgetdowns/                                                                                                                              
input = /home/username/.wgeturl                                                                                                                                     
logfile = /home/username/.wgetlog
PS: Please, do _not_ recommend me d4x or any other GUI-tool

yes, wget is capable to d/l much bigger than 700MB files with out any problems. I did it many times. It must be some damn bad transfer error. If you've buggy connection (like dial up) rollback function is very usable. As far as i know by default wget has no rollback option. :/
so here's patch:

I hope you find this useful.

I have to mention that wget starts downloading each time WindowMaker is loaded (for those who use this Window Manager, I edited the autostart file). I usually turn off my computer, using init 0, so wget shuts down immediately. Should I turn it off gently or....? Any ideas?
