How do I turn off segmented downloading???

Many HTTP file resumers download files from regular websites and FTP sites in chunks. In some cases, (usually because the website limits each connection's speed and the resumer is making multiple connections) they are faster than a straight, standard all-in-1-go download.

But even the all-in-1-go downloads are coming in chunks -- you can't fit a large file into 1 internet TCP/IP packet! Sometimes those packets get lost and have to be resent. Even on an otherwise "good" connection, roughly 1 packet in 1,000-10,000 gets lost and has to be resent.

Having to send the file in chunks is a small price to pay for actually GETTING the file complete and correct in the end.
