Download manager

Good Morning.

I seem to have run into a problem that only a download manager can solve. I live in a rural area and the only option that I have for internet service is Satellite. They have placed a restriction of 200 megabytes for a 24 hour period of downloads. As you all know this is such a small amount I seem to be over my limit on a regular basis. Especially doing downloads of pod casts and audio books from itunes.

I downloaded the free download manager but I cannot see that this will help much because I cannot figure out how to use it with itunes . In addition, I cannot set it to watch how much I download and stop it before I go over the limit.

One more thing - I can download all the content that I want between 3 and 6 am eastern time there are no restrictions. This program will let me schedule when to start the download but not when to stop it if it is not complete and resume the next day - unless I am just missing it.

Does anyone know how to make this program work for me or another one that would allow me to schedule downloads from itunes and other sites between these time frames and monitors my downloading so I will not exceeds the measly allowance I am given.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Most download managers only integrate into the web browsers, not other programs like iTunes.
A far easier solution might be to tell the computer to shut down at 5:55am, and any decent download manager should be able to pick up from next time.
