Need info. Such as what router are you using - are you wired or wireless - if wireless, is it a 'g' or 'n' network - what have you done - etc. We understand you may not know where or how to find all the info that is needed, but give us what you do know. We're shooting in the dark without some info.

If wireless, one of the easiest is to change the channel of the network as you may be using the same channel as a neighbor or some other interference.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
