How to resume partially downloaded files in Linux with wget


Resuming interrupted downloads is too important in some areas where the internet is not as stable as it could be in U.S. or Europe.
I find myself usually having interrupted downloads in the Hotels, usually wifi hot spots radios in hotels, are not well installed, I have found some of them with the radiation lobe parallel to the walls and not to the floor of the building, go figure!.
Well, so it is really frustrating to be 40% or 70% of a 300 MByte file downloaded, and that suddenly the Internet goes, even for 2 or 3 minutes, and then you have to restart the download of the file.
