Internet cutting out every few seconds

A few days ago my router completely shut off and took a while to come back on. Since then it has been cutting out on both my pc and mobile every few seconds. My ping appears to be normal in games but I will randomly lag as it cuts out. The broadband and the power lights are on but the ethernet, internet and wireless lights are continuously flashing. I'm connected via ethernet cable but as I have said this is an issue on my phone as well. Any thoughts?

sounds like you need to get the line checked

The broadband and the power lights are on but the ethernet, internet and wireless lights are continuously flashing.

That's usually a good healthy sign for most routers. If the broadband and/or Internet LEDs were off or red then I'd be worried. The flashing LEDs for the remaining ones usually indicate data activity. Therefore I don't suspect there's anything wrong with your broadband signal nor line.

The first thing to try with Internet connection problems is to simply turn your router off for a while then turn it back on. It frequently works miracles.
