I login to this site to download files, and my Internet connection keeps going out.

Is there a Mac download manager that can download these files, and have recovery options?

My files are like 2GB and its a real pain.

You could give a try, but it's probably not exactly what you want and incredibly slow on Macs. It supports recovery though. – slhck Nov 12 '10 at 13:49

Check out Speed Download. It will depend on the server you're connecting to, but in general it handles logins and resuming well.

DownThemAll is a download manager that runs as a Firefox extension. works great on a Mac.

DownThemAll lets you download all the links or images contained in a webpage and much more: you can refine your downloads by fully customizable criteria to get only what you really want.
