Recently, any time I'm downloading games, my PC "loses" internet, I have absolutely no idea why. I still have internet obviously because the download still goes, I've even tried limiting speed of the game downloads, but absolutely nothing else works on the internet, all my chrome tabs will stop loading as well as Firefox when i tested it. I've tried this with Steam and uPlay.

Can you ping beyond your gateway when it happens? Reason I ask is that this sounds like just a problem with dns resolution vs actual internet access since your download still is working.
