    I am having a problem with my wireless network in my home. Whenever download speeds over 2mbps go on for over a minute or so, the whole wireless network goes down for around a minute and boots back up. The wired connection works fine during this time. The Router I am using is a Netgear R6200 and it is broadcasting dual-band up to 300mbps and 800 mbps respectively. The drop in coverage happens regardless of which band I am using. Does anyone have any thoughts or possible solutions?

    My speedtest numbers are 33.09 mbps download and 6.04mbps upload.

    is this downloading via wireless / cable or wireless only and you say only wireless is effected

    sounds like an issue with the router,

    confirm that downloading via cable - works OK and does not effect the wireless at all

    Correct, wired downloads do not effect the wireless.
