Scheduling a download

Hi,
I would like to download COD 4 demo which is 1.2gb. How do I schedule a download to take place at midnight so it does not affect my usage?  I use Firefox and IE 7. DO I require a seperate program?
Many thanks
Dave

Re: Scheduling a download

Use a download manager like getright or similar.

I can recommend GetRight, not used for many years but it worked great then :-)  Have a search for freeware or open source download managers, there may be a few there as well.

Re: Scheduling a download

Flashget and  FreeDownloadManager both work extremely well for scheduling either http, ftp or even torrent downloads.
I've used both extensively and really can recommend them highly.

Getright also does torrents,  so I imagine most dl managers will.

Re: Scheduling a download

I used freedownloadmanager last night and it worked a dream - downloading between 0002 and 0400 and then it even shutdown the computer - perfect for what I need.
Many thanks
