Question Im stumped.. Damn Wireless...

So I bought me a wireless router a month or so ago and it work great for about 2 weeks. Now it seems like every few minutes my internet cuts out and I have to hit refresh 5 or 10 times before it loads the page. Im very close to my router and dont have anything around it that I would think would cause interference??

Do you have another router you can hook up to see if it's the router doing that?

Does the router have an ethernet port so that you can try it wired for a while? It may not be a wireless issue.

Additionally, if it is a wireless issue there are different channels that you wireless can run on. These are numbered 1-11. By default most routers are on 11. Try changing it to 1 or 6.

The channels overlap though so changing it to 9 won't help you because you will get overlap from people using 6 and 11. Everyone usually uses 1,6, or 11 since these are the furthest from each other and helps eliminate overlap.
