Linksys Connection Randomly Shuts Off

I connect to a wireless network from my home router. It's been working fine for
a long time but for a past few days it's been acting up.

My internet will work for 2 or 3 minutes, and then I'll lose the connection.

When I try to diagnose I'll get an error message "A cable is not plugged into the
network adapter "Local Area Connection".

If I go back to the router, unplug it then plug it back in, it'll work for a few
minutes and then go out again.

I use Charter internet, and a Netgear Cable Modem Gateway CG814GCMR.

Pleeeease help. I already tried replacing my hardware with a new router, it didn't work. I also switched the ethernet cords with another one, that didn't work either. But the hardware change DID make the internet last in longer intervals. Now it cuts off every few hours.

Does your internet remain uninterrupted when you connect the computer directly to the modem ?

No, it's the same.
