Windows 7: Are My Wireless Connections Preventing ISO Download?

Are My Wireless Connections Preventing ISO Download?

According to my ISP I should be achieving download speeds of 13 Mp/sec. Not the greatest, but adequate for our purposes. We have 4 computers (an old XP tower wired directly to our modem/router, a Windows 7 laptop, a Windows 10 laptop and a Windows 7 tower) and an iPad. Everything but the XP tower is wireless.

After the recent problems I had with the W10 laptop I figured it was time I had a W10 disk, but I can't ever seem to get it to complete. It's a 4.1GB file, that I got from here Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums, but no matter which browser or computer I use, it always fails.

When I turn off the wireless on my modem/router and run a speed test on the old XP tower I pretty much get that 13 Mb/sec download speed. When I turn the Wi-Fi on I'm lucky if I don't get a 'Latency Test Error' msg. If it does complete I get a DL speed of around 2.0 Mp/sec. When I actually try to download that ISO file (as I am now for about the 6th time), it'll start out giving me a rate of about 500 Kb/sec and telling me that it'll complete in just a few hours. But as time goes by the rate drops and drops and drops, and the estimated time to complete is soon up over a day. Right now Firefox is telling that it'll take 22 hours to complete at a rate of 39.7 Kb/sec. I know it won't complete.

We've got way too much going on with ipads and laptops for me to turn off the wireless for the amount of time this'll take to download.

Are my wireless devices causing me to not be able to download this ISO file? Does anyone have another solution other than turning off the wireless and downloading to the old wired XP tower?
