Ethernet connection stops but still connected

Hello,
After a recent reinstall of Windows 7 (around 1-2 weeks back), when I am connected to the internet (via ethernet, but I see the same problem on WiFi) my internet connection will work for a while, and then will stop working. This generally happens when I try to open a few tabs at a time or when I load a page with many elements. The icon in the tray will still indicate that I am connected, but I am unable to load any web pages.
.
Things that I have tried which do not work:
1) Turning on/off modem
2) Disconnecting ethernet and reconnecting
3) Closing my browser and restarting it
4) Combinations of the above
.
After 5-10 minutes of inactivity, I will again be able to browse but the problem will quickly resurface. I've been unable to find a solution to this online. Does anybody have any idea what the issue could be? I would really appreciate any advice.
