windows 7 Ultimate Service pack 1 x64

Ok i thought i solved the problem i was wrong, anyways, deciding to try something, i installed Net limiter on my computer and then used it to help see whats happening, anyways while i was watching a stream i saw how much Kb it was using at a steady rate, then BAM all the kb just drops till it becomes 0 and then after 5 or so seconds it goes back to normal, but this happens like every minute.
So if i go to safemode with networking how would i test for problems apart from trying just to use a web browser to surf the net?

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 ; Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

Go to command prompt and type the following exactly:

ping -t
This will continuously send ICMP requests to google. Look for 'Request timed out' as these can indicate a unstable connection. To terminate the command press CTRL+C

Hope this helps,
Josh :)

Not sure if this has been posted before (just quickly skimmed), but move the router away from any interfering devices (cordless phones, microwaves, etc) or vice versa. Also, you could use inSSIDer to see what channel your neighbors are using, allowing you to change your channel to one that's far away from theirs (try for 3 channels apart from closest neighbor).
