is there a way without signing up to a premium account where i can use a download manager to resume the download?

I can put up with the wait time but its frustating as hell when you download a 100+mb file only to be disconnected and have to start again.

Share the tricks thanks ;)

I take it you are on dialup! a 100MB file is a large file to download using dialup. If you are not on dialup then I fail to see a reason for being disconected! I have a premium account and that does make life easier for sending large files to people who are not on a vpn that I also use.
Try this:

im on broadband but wireless gets interference sometime causing drop in speed, so 100+mb file can feel like im on dial-up at times!

Have you tried changing the wireless channel?

yes, its because i live near lots of trees. And in any case Opera also sometimes drops download speed to 0kb/s in which normally i would pause a download and resume then it starts up again, this cant be done with rapidhsare...

..looking for a rapidshare resolve cheers

Can I resume broken downloads?

Yes, but only if you own a Premium-account. With a Premium-account, your requests are sent through more complex server-routines, which also support download-accelerators. Those programs support resume of broken files and even segmented downloads. This means, you can download the same file with many streams, resulting in higher download-speed.
