Internet disconnects when downloading?

    Title says it all.

    It is getting frustrating. I just want to leave uTorrent on over night to download, but within 20 minutes to an hour my internet just disconnects.

    I have XPlornet Radio internet (I live where there is no hardwire). They said they would call me if I was using too much internet from downloads, which they have never called me. They said when I reach 100GB's in a month they will call me, but that is virtually impossible to reach.

    My Router is a D-Link DIR825. It says my modem has disconnected, but the antenna outside my house has full bars. Usually when the internet is down, the lights are red or will flash. I reset it (Unplugging the antenna, and plugging it back in 2 minutes apart), and the web is still down. I then do the same, but with my router as well. Then BAM ! Internet is magically running again. Then it cuts out after enough time of downloading.

    I think it's a router problem if resetting the router fixes it? Could it be a setting in the router itself?

    Thanks so much.
