Using sockets for "downloader" application in Mathematica


I have a Mathematica program which will read data from a file. 
The file is in a Web server and so must be retrieved,
so I use 

!"wget http://URL/filename";

In Linux this is OK, but in Windows this is a source of trouble for me, 
as Windows doesn't have a 'wget' by default.

So, is there some way to implement a "downloader" for a file in 

Running Mathematica 5.2, Windows XP.
