PS it all seems good to me. Could it be a dodgy router causing the problem?

Not sure about it being the router, possibly the firewall.
Try updating the chipset drivers for your MB first of all.

Please note that you are only allowed to download two drivers a day for free and be sure to uncheck the "install AVG toolbar" option.
As an asides Mick I noted µTorrent (two entries) in your list of installed software, are you aware of the risk of malware attack when downloading torrents.

Have the latest drivers for the Realtek device saved on your desktop.
Create a new restore point.
Go into Device Manager.
Right click on the Realtek Ethernet device.
Uninstall both the Realtek device and it`s drivers.
Restart the computer and allow the device to be detected by the Hardware Wizard and then install the drivers for the device that you saved earlier - please ensure that Windows does not install it`s own generic drivers for the device.
RE downloading torrents: Some information for you Here

The problem with torrents is that while some are perfectly legal and free from malware many are not, ask any member of the GTG malware removal team and they will most likely not be able to recall how many people that they have helped remove malware from their machine that had originated from downloading a torrent, at least you are now better informed to make your own decision.
While I am on my soapbox another piece of info that you may find helpful is to avoid using so called "system optimizer software" as it often does more harm than good and the resultant fix suggested by the program will require a fee to be paid to the very same software provider that caused the problem, miekiemoes' Blog

CCleaner is fine for keeping things nice and tidy but steer clear of anything to do with the registry
