Weird Router Problems

Hello everybody my internet has been having connectivity issues, like once or twice a day I will go to load a URL and it just won't load, this problem can last up to 15 minutes at a time, however when I unplug and replug my wireless router the URLs load fine and the problem is fixed.

I have a Netgear WGR614 and a Motorola SB4200 SURFboard cable modem and I'm thinking that the router is what's causing this problem because when I restart it the problem goes away.

Will my internet speed/connectivity improve if I get a new wireless router or modem? If so what are some good ones?

  1. your internet speed will improve if you purchase a faster plan from your ISP. make sure your router has the latest firmware. try changing the wireless channel on the router to resolve your issue.
  2. So no reason to get a new router? I upgraded the firmware and my connection works fine now (ethernet) but now devices connected via wi-fi are even worse.

    My router is from 2002ish.
