Internet connection gets very bad

Lately i've had an issue with my internet. It will be fine for a few hours, but then the connection will quickly degrade to the point where it takes 2-3 minutes to load a page and it's nearly impossible to play games. Restarting the router fixes this problem, but then it arises again after a few more hours.

Have you tried setting up a different channel on your router,you may be getting co-channel interference.If you have either an Android tablet or smartphone download wifi analyzer and that will tell you the channel you're on and also others around you,i had the same problem as you (i'm with Virgin) and a channel change sorted me completely. i now have a nice stable connection.

in the process of downloading the app now, could you tell me how to switch the channel while i'm setting it up?

I changed it from channel 6 to channel 1, dear god this is a performance jump. Thanks a lot!

Your most welcome,if you have more problems just change it again to a different channel.
