Why do all my downloads stop after some time?

On my new Windows 7 Home laptop I’m unable to download big files as downloads stop after some time. I know the problem is not with my ISP as BT downloads never stop like this and I’m able to download huge (>1GB) files over BT without any issue.

Also, while loading some media rich sites like Google Reader the connection is reset with the following message: “Your connection to the server was reset.” However, if I open a new window, I’m able to browse other sites easily, which means that there is no issue with network connection.

Because of this issue, I’m unable to download any big file. I tried different browsers: Internet Explorer 8, Firefox, and Google Chrome. Moreover, installers that download during installation (e.g. Java JRE) cannot be installed as the download stops in between.

Kindly help me out.
