My first guess it that your router is overheating.  Next time you have a
problem, very carefully check the temperature of you router - check the
temperature on the router before you do any downloading, so you have
something to compare when you have a problem.

If temperature is not the problem, then you may just be overloading your
router or have a faulty router.

Do you have the same problem if you are downloading whilst connected via
ethernet cable to the router?

There maybe a way to limit your download speed when connected over wireless,
but have not looked into that.  Any one have ideas?

Thank you.
