I am wondering, is there a wget equivalent for windows 2000/xp?

I am trying to download a massive file but windows keeps closing the download after a few 10's of MBs for an unknown reason. Probably because of the periods of timeouts.

Is there a wget equivalent or a way to extend the period for timeouts during downloads?

Download timeouts may be server side problems.

But wget is available for windows, in fact I thought the 'w' stood for 'windows'
