I have a home network which consists of a cable modem, router, and three computers. Occasionally, I get garbled HTML pages or images either from uploading or downloading. I am running Fast Ethernet, so I know this can be sensitive. I've made sure that none of the cables run too close to power lines. However, the 100baseT cables run parallel to the 10base2 (cable modem). Is it possible that these two could be interefering with each other? Also, I just realized that the cable between the router and the cable modem might be shorter than 6 ft. as well.
