Sounds like command-line FTP is what you want in that case.  You
can use the 'restart' command to restart a failed transfer, eg:

get brokenfile.tar.gz

(Actually, the FTP manual I have here suggests that you have to put
the byte count after the 'restart' command, but I'm pretty sure that's
not the case ...)
