If you are using Wget 1.12, you can use the --http-user and
--ask-password options. Otherwise, use --http-user and --http-password.

You may also need --auth-no-challenge for it to work; but try without
first, as --auth-no-challenge can leave you more vulnerable to
man-in-the-middle attacks when fetching unencrypted pages.
