General comment on the format: it would help if you would put the text 
and list portions in standard (>80 columns) format. ASCII drawings are 
harder to fit sometimes, but even those will come across better under 
80 columns. I use a GUI MUA so I was able to resize to view your post 
properly, but remember, much of your audience might be using mutt.

I would suspect hardware first.

Did you try swapping out that NIC?

You do have my sympathy, but I didn't download the file. I would be 
likely to do that if it was something I could view in the browser, like 
text or HTML.
