Wifi Keeps Cutting in and out every 3-5 minutes.

Hello guys,

My Wifi Keeps on cutting out every 5-20 minutes for roughly 2 minutes or so and then it resets itself. My wifi works on all of our cell phones and tablets. I would greatly appreciate any help that you guys may provide for me.

  1. bump I can really use help please.
  2. Try updating your router firmware.
  3. Firmware is updated.
  4. Different channels?
  5. Do you recommend a specific one I should switch it to?
  6. Set channel to 'auto' on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz.

    Which frequency are you using to connect? 5Ghz is better for streaming, etc, but it has less range. It has more channels available so less chance of interference. You should try to use 5Ghz as much as possible, since there are more channels available.

    2.4Ghz has better range but can get more interference from nearby wireless networks.
