Windows 7: Internet drops when downloading

There looks no issues with the xirrus.

Can you boot into safe mode with networking by pressing F8 at startup and let us know whether you have internet or not.

Post Layback bears request as well in #2.

I booted into safe mode with networking and I did have access to the internet. All the same issues as before.

I have updated my system specs with a bit more information.

Open a cmd by right and choosing run as administrator and type:

netsh int ip reset resetlog press enter
netsh int ipv6 reset resetlog press enter
netsh winsock reset catalog press enter
ipconfig /flushdns

Restart computer.

Let us know whether you have internet or not?

I done all of the above and restarted my computer, I do have internet connection but im still experiencing the issues when it comes to downloading.

Im not sure if these trends are just circumstantial or whether it may be just random however after i ran those cmds I tried my download via steam, within about 1-2 minutes the download speed dropped and eventually cut out. However I then tried to download via BitTorrent to test, and managed to grab a file without any hiccup.

Again, there has been times where Steam has not gone down aswell and this is the first torrent I have tried to download so it may not be worth anything but I figured it may help whether some setting somewhere just doesnt like Steam or what?

I have also noted with Steam, if when the internet speeds are dropping, If i tell my ASUS WLAN card setting programme to reconnect to the wifi the speed starts to go up.

Again, you guys are the experts. I'm just putting in what im seeing incase it helps.

Cheers guys

Stop all the downloading and uploading via torrents and exit immediately. torrents can use a lot of bandwidth try and download as normal then.

I didnt do it at the same time, it wouldnt be much of a test then i rarely use torrents but i figured it'd be something to compare against

I'm sorry for the long delay, I've been very busy the past few days with work so I havent had much time to actually sit down and try and sort this. I just screened an ipconfig:
