To download via a ftp server
wget -r l4 ftp://username:password(at)

To download a file with no special character in url

To resume a download
wget -c

To convert all absolute links to relative ones
wget -k

To download a file with a special character "&" in url
wget ""

To download all associated files as well
wget -p

To download a complete website
wget -r

To specify the filename after downloading it
wget --output-document=forum.html

To limit the speed of the download
wget --limit-rate=20k

To download files with a particular extension
wget -A.htm

To download urls from a list in a file
