Almost all of the crashes blame something going on in your TCP/IP stack, as well as USB. I wouldn't doubt it's your DW1501 Wireless LAN card drivers. Make sure that they are the latest.

What date in 2010? The crashdumps says your drivers are dated Jan 21, 2010. Anything newer is worth a shot.

In addition, I found McAfee also involved. I'm not one to place personal opinions in diagnoses, but McAfee is relatively notorious in the IT industry for being unstable. There may be need to replace it with an alternative (free AV like Microsoft Security Essentials and Avast are very good nowadays). If you feel it necessary to continue using McAfee, I did notice that the drivers for it are dated March 2011. You may wanna do something about that.

How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) can help in removing any McAfee remnants. Pay special attention to MCPR in those steps.
