Windows 7: Using any browser my download stop at random

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Using any browser my download stop at random

It's my 1st post, and english isn't my 1st language so please be gentle...

I have a very weird problem.
I have a fresh windows installation (4 days) using windows 7 ultimate x64.
I use google chrome. Today when i wanted to DL a file, at random moment dl speed has went down. 1st it showed normal dl speed (2mb/s) but the % of download and time to finish download didn't changed. Then it goes down to some funny number lik 20 kb/s...
i downloaded mozilla firefox, opera and even tried IE, but the same problem occurs.
I disabled Kaspersky internet security 2012, but this didn't work.
but the weirdest thing is that show normal values for download upload and ping.
Well sorry the weirdest thing is that i even downloaded "free download manager" and it downloaded all of the files (tried 5 different from different sites) with no problems, always above 2mb/s.
I am using linksys router so i unplugged it and plugged directly to modem, didn't work
I have preformed virus scan, with no results.
I did not change any registry entry.
The download stops at a random moment, each time different than the other.

I have already tried solutions posted here:
Internet speed suddenly slow?
All web browsers stop downloading data every few seconds
none of them helped.


Udpate 1:
Seems that download manager also have problems, but at least after it stops downloading it resumes (but with lower speed ~800kb/s) after a while
