wget is the answer to your prayers. When you use it, the file will be
dnloaded to the directory you are in, so be in the directory that you
want it to be in. 

If it stalls at some point, ctrl C if you need to, but once you have
your prompt back, just up arrow once to enter the same command again,
and wget will resume the dnload from where it was last. Nice, especially
when something happens like is happening to you. I wouldn't leave home
without it and it is the best advice you have been given. Just forget
all about torrents. Just straight up use wget 

OH YES!!! You should use wget -c which is the auto-resume feature. 

wget -c jaunty-desktop-i386.iso    <----THAT is what you want. 

Without the -c you'll start over, if I'm not incorrect, I always use
wget -c

Trust me on this, when you use a modem you can't live without it. Your
problem solved. Ric
