Hi again and again and again.....
Here is the latest. My computer worked fine. Then I unplugged / unhooked everything...(computer, router, cable modem)for about a day and a half. I hooked everthing back up last night and got it running. NOW ..... out of every minute online I lose connection about 15 - 20 seconds out of every minute...literally. I tried to play an online game and again out of EVERY minute I lost connection for 16 seconds. It's driving me nuts! Any suggestions please?

Why was it unhooked? Did it move to another room?

Cable companies change the signal strength depending on where you have the computer / digital TV receiver in the home.

So - Was it moved?

If it wasn't moved, then turn off the internet modem and router. Start the modem first - let the lights stabilize - Now start up the router. Once the router stabilized, get on and see how it works.

Let us know...

Yes... I unhooked everything and moved everything out of the room. Got new carpet in that room...hence the move. Put everything back into same location. router and modem are 2 feet from their original place. I'll let you know how your suggestion works...thanks!

Problem solved. Got a new router and now it works great. I still don't know what happened with the old one. ???:dunno:
