I am unsure why but there's one file on a server which chokes every time when it gets to 10mb. The file reported is 16mb. Can I use wget or curl to get and resume the file? When I used Firefox to resume I got some error about source but I know the files on the server are streamed and have jump to the middle of a file so I should be able to resume.

Maybe I can use another tool, any ideas?

wget has -c, which will attempt to continue the download at its current point based on the size of the file downloaded thus far.
