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. -- Best Regards: Baron.
