Default Have to babysit all downloads...they always stop!

Hello all!

Thanks for looking at this. I am admittedly early in this process so any help is good.
ANYTHING I download stops at random intervals and needs to be manually restarted. The download will continue for anywhere from 5-15 seconds before stopping again. I have to "babysit" downloads in Win 7 by clicking the reload button whenever it stops.

Things I have tried:
Bypassing router,
Changing modem to D3 (I have 20-30 Mb service),
I am hardwired,
Used wife's computer (wireless, downloads fine),
Downloaded Chrome (I use Firefox),
Turning windows firewall off,

As of now, I think this is the whole list...there may be more.

I don't know what other information is pertinent, I could give motherboard info if necessary. I am using on-board [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]networking[/COLOR][/COLOR] card.

Please respond with any questions or advice you may have even if it seems like it might not help....I am not even sure what questions to ask myself, so anything helps

Thank you very much!

Try your wife’s computer on wired and see if it works and if so i would say it is OS related or driver issue.

Thank you very much for the quick response! I wired my wife's computer and it worked perfectly fine.

If it is my OS, aside from reinstalling, what are my troubleshooting options. And as for drivers, which components would I be looking at new drivers for, networking card, motherboard?

Again, I really appreciate people helping me here. Any questions or recommendations are useful

Thanks
