Since I upgraded to Jetstream bout 3-4 months ago I have noticied that most of my downloads finish corrupted. Its not a virus/spyware prob im thinking that it might be something to do with my network card (DSE XH8266). So my question is can I have my adsl modem hooked up by USB and ethernet at the same time but force Xp to use USB (just to see if prob still exists) I would just have it hooked up buy USB fulltime but I use Linux from time to time. So will this work ?
Any comments or other ideas on this prob would be appreciated :thumbs:

on a side note, alot of my linux downloads like rpms become corrupted if i pause and resume them.... have you tried a different download manager?

Have you tried USB only, unplug ethernet, just for a test.

Don't have both at once - ethernet OR USB.
Try it on USB and if that fixes it, get a new NIC.

check your NIC drivers. i've had it before and it was the card drivers not the card itself.
