I don't really know for sure, but I don't think that you can resume. To resume you should use a download manager like KGet or something.

hehe ^^
I don't think there is any GUI tool that is able to do just 1% of the things wget does ^^
so few users learn about the power of all those tools they have at their hand because they are scared of the great and mighty CL =)
