How to do a bulk download of password-protected data?


I've had to do this manually many times.  If it weren't for the
password-protection, it would be easy with wget or rsync.  As it is, I have
to log in to whatever site contains the data with my web browser, then
click on each and every one of what is sometimes over one hundred different
links.

I understand that wget has some capability of sending cookies, and that
that's how password-related credentials are presented, but I do not know
how to set it up.  Are there any howto's youtubes, or the like about this?
