For the last month or two it seems I get knocked offline and have to reset the router and/or modem to get back online about once each day, mostly in the afternoon. When i check the internet icon in the tray, it seems I find that instead of the home network icon (my SSID which has a "house" icon) there is a "public network" icon (like a park bench). There are other SSID names listed of other computers that neighbors use (signal strength is usually fair to poor while mine says excellent). Sometimes this seems to happen when someone is using the main computer that is hooked up to the cable modem and router but not always. I've never had to reset the modem or router so often before.
Is there anyway to check to see what might be causing this and fix the problem?
