I also went through the link your provided and tried some of the other solutions suggested and none of them seemed to work.

this didn't not show any improvement. Still the same problem, internet works fine until I try to download anything. Also there was no output for any of these commands. Thanks for your help.

@david6 I am using DSL though I am not sure the exact router model(this has also happened on two different networks, one of which was a public network.) Using speedtest.net I got 4.53mb/s right now though I have gotten over 5 before. Generally when I download something my speeds(on this network) are between 500kb/s and 1.25mb/s.

Thanks for the answer! The problem I am experiencing only happens on Ubuntu 12.10, if I am on Windows 7 I can download things all I want with no problem on my, or anyone other, computer. The problem I am experiencing isn't just slow internet, whenever I try to download anything, it completely shuts down the internet for every other computer on my network. I have never had this problem before it only started happening within the past month, so I wouldn't expect it to be my bandwidth in the way you mentioned. And it has happened on multiple networks so it shouldn't be my router.

@david6 This is the info for my wireless card: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 (rev 67). It is a built in card.

@Mochan Yes, I actually reinstalled Ubuntu since this problem started happening and fully updated as well.

My MTU is set to automatic. Is there something else it should be set to?

@Mochan I also dual boot Windows 7 and the problem stops as soon as Linux is turned off.
