It could be the speed in general.

I would try contacting your ISP check your speeds.

Could you go to and post your results here.

Next, what browser are you using when you download, and once u start the download are you closing that page that you started the download on?

If both wired and wireless are doing the same thing it may be your internet connection rather than the router.
