Internet disconnects every few minutes

Recently the internet connections sometime stops working and then it works again for a few minutes only to disconnect again this repeats. I've asked my family and they experience the same problems as me with the internet just disconnecting. Also everyone is using ethernet cables.

    No one is using wireless updated post about it
    the router has a reset hole and no I haven't cleared my internet cookies/cache/temp files since I assume it's a router problem
    I'm gonna contact our ISP tomorrow when the phone line is open

    Try resetting the router & as far as for internet cookies/cache/temp files download ccleaner I mean you can do it manually but I prefer automatically

    A lot of times this can be solved by unplugging your modem/router or both for 30 seconds and then plugging it/them back in.
    Most consumer modems have a limited amount of ram for error checking/correcting and do not flush the ram when done. once the ram is full you will experience problems like you have.
    I finally got fed up with having to do mine almost daily and flashed my router with DD-WRT about a week ago and have not had the problem since.
    If you decide this is something you want to do, make sure you take a couple evenings reading their forums/wiki and proper procedures for your particular router/modem and follow the instructions EXACTLY. Otherwise you will brick/kill your equipment.
  5. Resetting the router with the reset button will wipe everything.
    Make sure you know how to set it back up before you set it to factory defaults using the reset button.
