The page is protected by basic authentication, so I could not test it

But it seems to me the URL parameters might be malformed.

Normally each key/value parameter is separated by the '&' character, and
unless the server does its own parameter parsing it can't understand the

Now, the browser might silently expand the GET URL into a proper format and
it "just works", but wget only does exactly what you ask it to.

Try to replace each ';' in the URL to a '&' and see what happens:


Best regards,
