You are using homegroup for your networking. Homegroup can sometimes suffer from slow downs and drops. You can verify this by setting up a new netwrok connection using the "workgroup" model. If the problem clears you can then just kill the homegroup and disable IPv6

Let us know if you need help.

Your router may not be new enough for IPV6 or have the current firmware for it.
So try unchecking IPV6 & re-booting, to see how it works.

Alex, I do not have IPv6 connected either. It is a new protocol and is not necessary for a simple network. Here is some information for you.
