Can you narrow the problem down to one computer, the one wired to the router? Is this a new problem, did you have a reliable connection before this router?

Try with another browser, eg. Firefox click here

yes its a new problem and yes i had a reliable connection I have a cable (broadband)connection
would it have anything to do with the wires loose etc

Loose wires is one possibility, if nothing else has changed. But have a look for options such as 'disconnect on idle' on the router and browser.

But have a look for options such as 'disconnect on idle' on the router and browser.
