mint 8 wireless limitations

I've got a little problem with my wireless.

My wireless connection with my recent install of Mint 8 seems to be limited by something.

The connection has acted very strangely, and I think it might have something to do with large downloads.

My thinkpad has 2 gigs of ram and runs smooth and fast except for this connection.

The connection either goes out or gets extremely slow when I try to download something. (I was downloading an iso of gnewsense)

Can you think of anything that might be inhibiting my wireless connection?
I know it probably has something to do with the OS because all my other machines have blazing fast connections.

As you can imagine it's pretty annoying to have your wireless go on and off and have to reboot a handful of times throughout the day.

Thanks in advance, and happy holidays or christmas or whatever!

I don't know if this helps but here you go!
