Why does my internet keep cutting out?

Specs: Windows Vista
It is really weird. Two people in my house, they can never say connected to the internet for more than ten minutes at a time. When ever it cuts out, they have to reconnect to the wireless. There are 6 people in my house, and we are all connected to one router. I dont think that there is an over load problem.

Ive searched extensively, yet i still do not have any idea whats wrong.

Any suggestions on what to do? We all bought our computers summer of 2008, so we all have Windows Vista.

6 PCs shouldn't create an overload. Make sure that the 2 problem PCs are clean. Download, update & run anti malware from malwarebytes.org

i know for a fact that one computer is clean. I just dont know what would be kicking her off the network.

I would still run the program that I recommended. If you don't want to do that, maybe someone else has another suggestion.

So all are connected by wireless? Whats your signal strengh like?

Have you considered reseting the router/modem to default settings and reconfiguring your router/modem?

Are all the computers up to date with the latest Service pack and updates?

Do you think it could be a problem with your dhcp leases? Check your dhcp config in your router, remove the leases on the router and on the laptops (start-run-cmd-ipconfig /release) and restart the dhcp service on the router then the laptops (start-run-cmd-ipconfig /renew).

Gives thes a try. Try blowing the router config away as a last resort after you have tried the others.

Good luck.
