My internet works for a couple minutes when the computer turns on then it says

can't connect to servers

and my downloads stop. I am running 12.10 and I am using a Asus USB N13 to connect to the internet.

The weird thing is it says I am still connected.

What output do you get from ifconfig when the connection goes down?

Might also be a firewall issue. Try sudo iptables --flush
