I'm working out of a hotel with somewhat poor internet. I need to download a large 5 gig file. It looks like the estimate is about a day. I'm sure this will probably have 2 issues, the connection itself being interrupted at some point AND even if the download completes, it may be corrupted due to the nature of http.
Aside from discussion of how and why this is, is there an actual solution in my given situation? I think my biggest problem is corruption, is there an http client which can prevent that altogether?
Details of my machine: Acer Aspire "Timeline" M5 Model number: -581TG (I bought it from the official Acer store in Thailand, Pantip Plaza). It has the default network drivers on it:

- Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet
