Re: All Large (~3GB+) Files Download Corrupt

Different OSes mean different AVs. I've also tried putting a computer in the DMZ and that didn't help.

I have not tried a new Coax from the ONT to the Actiontec. It's a very long run across floors, and I want to think of that as a last resort.

I have tried different cat5 cables, and different ports.

The files all download 100%, however, when I do an MD5 or SHA-1 checksum, the value returned doesn't match the expected value published by the content host. Downloading on other networks (including using my Android phone over 4G LTE) return the correct checksum. The corrupt downloads are broken files that will not execute properly (for example, and Windows ISO file will run, but fail say, 30% into install).

I'm actually going out of town for a few days, but when I get back I'm going to try switching from Coax to Ethernet (should also eliminate the need to try a different coax line) as well as keep bothering Verizon Techs to try and get a replacement ActionTec.
