Hi, my internet connection has dynamic IP. So when I download some file from file sharing site, and if my internet connection breaks, my download can't resume from where it had stopped since my IP adress is changed.

But if I stop the download manually (without breaking internet connection), as the IP address remains same, I can resume the download from that point.

So I was thinking if using a proxy server would help to get me a static IP? I mean can I use a proxy server so that everytime the download resumes, it reports a constant (static) IP to the website?

Please tell some FREE proxy server which I can configure in chrome and free download manager and how to configure them, tell that too.

Thnx in advance :)

There was an extension in Chrome called Geoproxy, worked for me.

And most file sharing sites break your downloads specially, to entice you to buy a membership, some even don't let you use download managers...

You can't, even if you do, it won't help work the way you want it to. Maybe try a VPN? GoTrusted's a pretty good one and has a 1 week free trial period and like $6 monthly. Now, the thanks button is easy to hit ^_^.
