Try re-setting the router - simply disconnect Power from router, wait ten seconds then re-connect power.

Wireless work at less than half speed of a Ethernet Wire. I use both

Change to a different channel number on your router and laptop/PC.

If neighbours are using sme channel can cause drop outs.

You change it in the Wireless setings in router, using Internet Explorer put the router address in the address bar and press enter key. Mine is your's may be different
