Windows 7: Download speeds drop to 0 kb/s and the download has to be restarted

Download speeds drop to 0 kb/s and the download has to be restarted

I have a problem with Windows 7 64bit.

When i download any file from the internet after some seconds the download decreases the speed and gets stuck at 0kb/s and wont continue downloading.
This happens to me with every program that tries to download something: google chrome, firefox, game updates (league of legends), etc... (but only on my computer, i have more in the same wireless network and they dont have this problem)

Also, i found a post from someone that has the same problem that i have (i also have an SSD and a classic hard drive) but none of the answers helped me, here is the link:

Sounds to me like something is amiss with the driver(s) possibly. I would go into the device manager of the control panel and uninstall the device with the issues. Then reboot and let windows re detect it and re install it and then reboot again and hopefully it will solve the issue. Give that a shot and see what happens. Post back if the problem still persists.
