Actually, that didn't fix my issue lol. I can't edit my post. There are a whole strange plurality of issues...I sometimes can't connect to steam or start one of my games. Some google searches seem to stall for minutes and never even load (HTTPS I think), windows update can't find drivers automatically and windows update sporadically works. Again, none of this happens when i use a wireless connection to the router, only with ethernet. Any ideas guys?
A possibility, it looks like you have a firewall or antivirus program enabled in your wired adapter properties but not in your wireless adapter properties. I would suggest comparing the properties settings of the two adapters. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center, then select change adapter settings. Then right click local area connection (wired) then click on properties and note the list of resources and those checked (enabled). Do the same for wireless network connection. You will probably see a firewall or antivirus program enabled in one but not the other.
