Sounds like it's either losing the connection from the modem, or the router is dying.

What's the exact make/model of the modem? If you connect directly to the modem, do you lose the connection that way?

Some things you can try here, listed in the order you should try them.

  1. For wireless connections, remove all the stored wireless profiles and search for networks. You'll have to enter the encryption key again, which is sometimes the issue for connection problems.
  2. For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
  3. For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
  4. Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
  5. Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
  6. Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

That's the drivers on your machine, you go to the machine manufacturer's support site (or NIC manufacturer for add-on products) and download and install the latest drivers for your exact make/model and hardware revision.
