Many thanks with all your very timely help. I have had no issues since 
following you instructions to upgrade to 1.11.4 and installing it in the /opt 
directory. I used:

$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/wget

And point to ist specifically:

/opt/wget/bin/wget      --tries=10 -r -N -l inf --wait=1\
        -nH --cut-dirs=2 ftp://oceans.gsfc.nasa.gov/MODISA/ATTEPH/ \
        -o /home1/software/modis/atteph/mirror_a.log \

Thanks again.
