Internet crashes while downloading

Plain and simple. The internet crashes when i decide to download something big. I was downlloading WoW(game) using the Official Blizzard dowloader and the internet would crash. The troubleshooter would reset the port and it would work again. It would crash after downloading for about 5 min. Didnt matter if i was downloading a movie it would still crash. Runs fine and never crashes when im NOT dowloading.

Drivers are good and my internet speed is 25mb/s. Also its cable internet so its always on. This never happened before and it started when i formated my new harddriver with this OS.

So, you just installed Windows 7, and now you have disconnects when you download large files?

The only time I've had this problem it was due to bad drivers. Are you using wireless or wired?

wired.

The driver version is 73.1.4.0 NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet

I have a nFoce 680i mother board. I used the driver finder thing at the nvidia website for my drivers.

There are issues with the nForce drivers for Windows 7. From the nVidia forum:

I suggest you review that thread I linked. There are settings in there that seem to help the disconnects. It's four pages long, but shouldn't take long to read.
