how to download using wget in binary mode - linux

I need to download *.tar.gz file from server but when I do that, I get an error

ERROR: The ./files.tic seems to be corrupted.

I think it is because it has been downloaded in ASCII mode, and I need to download in binary mode. How to run wget in binary mode? Or any other command to get binary file.

This file is from http, not ftp.

AFAIK the MIME type for the file does not change its contents. So you should be already getting the right representation of it. HTTP protocol does not have text/binary types for data. Data is data :)

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol#Response_message for further info.
