Everytime I download a game from steam my internet will not work unless I pause my game download or wait until the download is finished. This never happens when I use Origin though.

If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos

It sounds like Steam is hogging all of your bandwidth. It's one of the complaints that I have with Steam where I can't define the download speed so it always ends up hogging all of the bandwidth. I've never had a problem where I can't browse the web though. Most of the time it just means web pages take a long time to load like I'm back on dial-up.

Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Set download limit.

Is that new? I don't remember seeing that option before. Thanks for the tip. I'll check that out when I get home.

they added that a few updates ago.

very useful because steam will use 100% of your connection speed.
