$ man wget

"Affirmative options can be negated by prepending the --no- to the
option name; negative options can be negated by omitting the --no-
For instance, using "follow_ftp = on" in .wgetrc makes Wget follow FTP
links by default, and using --no-follow-ftp is the only way to restore
the factory default from the command line."

The words *For instance* are very important here. They mean "For example" ;)

So from manpage it follows that you need --no-convert-links on the command line.

BTW if you want to ignore .wgetrc altogether (which seems to be
indicated by the subject line) then you have:

$ man wget

           Specify the location of a startup file you wish to use."

So in that case you need to use --config (without any value) on the
command line.

Hope that helps!
