Issues with these forums and downloading large files

First, I've been trying to view these forums to solve a problem I have, but about 90% of the time I try, I get 

Uh oh... that shouldn't have happened. It appears you've found a glitch in the system.
Like seriously, WTF? Chrome, Firefox, and IE. No consistent success. Only using adblock on Chrome, and MSE is my antivirus on Win7. It's pissing me off and I can't even report the error.
Plus, I've been trying to download some games I purchased from the Marketplace and they at die around 31%, with just a message saying "Can't download [GAMENAME]", and no actual error code. Smaller downloads work fine.
I have:
-cleared my system cache several times
-formatted my 120gb hard drive
-recovered my profile
-put my router in DMZ mode
-tried bypassing my router
-contacted my ISP. They blamed Microsoft.
It's an older arcade that is up to date. It is a WIRED connection. I noticed this when attempting to download Halo: Reach for the first time. I have downloaded Dead Space and NFS: Carbon successfully in the past, but they are failing now.
Online chat support was not helpful; they've escalated it so a "specialist" can help, but they said that could take 15 days. 
 

Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 0 Applies to:

The glitchy thing has been pretty weird. I've been dealing with it since yesterday. Some people have reported it and it should be being looked into by forum support.

When you DMZed, did you turn off UPnP? I've been told that is required. At least disable and reenable to clear and UPnP table flooding.

Formatted... but have you tried a different storage device? Like a flash drive?

Could be static on the line with a cable internet connection. If you have a coaxial cable, unscrew it from your modem/gateway's end, touch the tip to discharge any static and *** it back in. Because some people would do this  with everything ON... Make sure you powercycle: xbox off. Router off, modem off. Coaxial cable and then slow progression (modem, router, console) back on.

Yeah, I've seen that I'm not alone. I haven't touched my UPnP settings... I'll give that a shot. I just tried a different Xbox HDD (250gb) and still no luck, still stopping at 31%. Also, my connection is DSL. Thanks for the input. At this point, I'll try almost anything.

It looks like this is my issue, but I have a 2Wire 3800 series modem/router.

Clear everything on the browsers cache to fix this issue.  That's what I had to do.

I assume that's just the answer to the first problem I mentioned. What about the second?

Greetings, Hellcrone. Very sorry you're unable to download games. It seems like you've tried a lot of different troubleshooting steps thus far. If I understand correctly, it looks like you are using a wireless connection. Is that correct? Can you do me a favor and try connecting your console directly to the modem and let me know if you see any change? Keep me posted! :)
