Couple of ideas.- run tcpdump -s0 -X >dump.txt during a bad download and see if the content of the packet is bad. TCP checksums should find bad stuff in transit
- there can be memory or disk problems *on the server* not on your client. If you control the server test this also. This would explain why the TCP packets are not seen as corrupted, the data was corrupted before it was sent over the network
- If you control the server, try downloading synthetic files, eg dd if=/dev/urandom of=testfile bs=1024 count=1024 will generate 1M of randomish junk. Look for commonality if there are errors in that too.
- Network driver could be crapping on its buffers I guess. -Andy
