My internet keeps crashing.

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello..

So i have had this problem for a while now. My internet seems to disconnect like ten times a day. Sometimes i can be on for hours with no problems other times it disconnect me every five minute. It has nothing to do with the weather. i have tried changing my modem and my firewall cant be the reason since my friends experience it aswell on their computer when using my internet.

Any ideas?

I beg to differ. The fact that it does happen to your friends when they plug in on your network (the inference being, it doesn't happen to their computer at home or elsewhere, ergo it's not their computer) points at your router being the issue.

Click on my name above in my response and read my "how-to" guide on troubleshooting wireless issues. The steps on troubleshooting your router are worth trying since they apply to any SOHO router regardless of whether you have wireless or not. Give that a try.

Thanks for the quick answer.

i have been looking at your guide and the first step is what i always do when the internet crashes. Then it works fine for some time and then it disconnect again.

regarding to your second suggestion, how do i check for new firmware?

Go to the manufacturer's website and search "downloads" for your model. Compare the most recent firmware available to what you already have in your unit. If the one on the website is newer, download it and upgrade your router.
