Default help with wireless router!!

Hey there, i have had the same wireless router setup in my house for almost a year now, and have never had a problem with it. starting on friday when i came home from work i noticed that it was not detecting my network, i thought no biggie so i reset my router and it popped right up and worked great...... for 10 minutes. then it was gone again, and it would not connect or do anything until i reset it again. then it worked great, for 12 minutes.... i have been having to do this right now, and probably will before i can submit this thread!! so i was talking to my neighbor today and his is doing the same thing!! totally differant providers, and routers!!! what gives!!! mine is a 2.4 ghz router so i was thinking interferance, but neither of us have changed anything lately. what else should we look for.
Thanks guys, and gals.

Do you have cable internet?

If so sounds like you aren't getting a strong enough single from your cable provider, or could mean you have a bad splitter splitting your cable signal between your tv and cable modem.

If you are using a splitter it might be bad. Try to remove splitter and take cable directly to modem and see if it goes away. If so buy a new splitter.

If the splitter isn't the problem get your cable provider to test your signal strength, it is probably low.

Adding anything to the line for the modem is a bad idea. Split TV's if you must, never cut into your coax feeding the modem.

Home runs are always best. Don't use RG-6
