Mozilla downloading problem


I've been trying to download drivers for my graphics card and everytime I try to do so I get disconnected from the internet, thats not the problem as dial up alway does that. But Mozilla has a pause/resume feature for the downloads but when I get disconnected then reconnect I can't resume the download. Is there a way to fix this or something else I can use to get the download that when I get disconnected I can continue again?

is it a ftp or http site? if it is an old (or badly configured) http server it might not support resume. if so, there's nothing you can do.

I don't actually remember if mozilla has a working resume. Consider using wget (it's usually already installed, try man wget )

If it does notwork , maybe you get some crop bytes when you get disconnected. you may try this:
dd if=whatever of=whatever.new bs=1k count=(file size(kb)-10)
mv -f whatever.new whatever
