Re: All Large (~3GB+) Files Download Corrupt Very strange problem.
Have you tried new coax cable from the ONT to the Actiontec?
Have you tried new Cat5e (or Cat6) from the Actiontec to the PC?
Have you tried the different ethernet ports on the Actiontec?
When you say corrupted.. Does that mean they all stop at the same approximate file size, or they show the full file size but just aren't usable?
Moving to cat5/6 instead of coax for data from the ONT is a good idea just from a troubleshooting perspective.
Good luck, and I do want to hear about the solution when it happens.

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.
