I won't try to get this all documented in this first post, as I am sure you folks will have a ton of questions for me.
I am having problems with my home LAN. For several weeks I have been having problem downloading large files. I shall define large files as over 400 MB for this discussion.
Internally I (it appears) can copy files back and forth from computer to computer using just about any operating system and application without problem.
When I attempt to download large files, like ISOs from mirrors, I consistently get corrupted files. I believe they are corrupted because the SHA1 hashes are incorrect.
If I grab the same file via a Amazon EC2 instance, the SHA1 hash is just fine.
At home my speed tests, and more importantly, packet loss tests, indicate that everything should be working just fine.
I don't know how to track down the problem at this point. That is why I have come here, hoping you all can teach me how to troubleshoot this issue.
If successful, I will writeup the process for others to follow.
What ideas do you folks have for me to try?
