Losing internet connection during large downloads, need help!

Hey guys!
For a while I have been getting an odd problem, when I am downloading a large file, usually a steam game, the internet connection drops across my whole house, and then comes back up within a minute or two. This is very annoying when i am trying to download a game and do something else. Now this isn't an ISP problem, the internet light is always on for that. But the router seems like it might be the problem. I have a linksys e2000. Is there anything I can do to prevent this annoying intermittent connection during heavy use?

If your problem still persists then i'll save you a HUGE headache (one that I've had for over 2 weeks now and just solved).

Its a Stupid Problem.

Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Your Network and Choose Properties > Advanced Tab >

Now Just Make SURE both boxes under Internet Connection Sharing are NOT Checked. (if the one on the bottom is, check the one on the top then uncheck the bottom, then uncheck the top)

This should solve your problem.
