Mmm.  Two things spring to mind.  Download corruption because of a bad 
network card or poor cable connections on the Ethernet connectors.  Try 
replacing the cable.

If you are using a WiFi connection there may be an interfering signal on 
the channel you are using.  The quick way to check is to change the 
chanel that your router is transmitting on.

Though I have seen routers/modems that have had bad power supplies cause 
corrupt downloads.

I'm curious to learn what you actually find the problem to be.
