So recently every now and again my connection will start to really fail. It'll be fine, then some time around nighttime, or maybe early in the morning, or maybe some random time, it'll start to really fail. Pages take forever to load, if they don't just eventually give up, Google Chrome gives me "connection timed out" and "refused connection" page load messages, you know the drill. 

 

Now not being able to load online pages, that's one thing. But when I type in the address for my router, which my computer is directly connected to, that also lags. I don't remember if it's ever outright not loaded, but shouldn't I at least be able to access the router? 

 

What could be happening to my connection if I can't access my router?

That your router is going bad, your wire to router is somehow faulty, or you have some program or settings that may be causing issues.

 

In my experience if the router is a couple years old it's usually the router. Or if it has recently gotten much warmer and you can touch the router and it is hot, the router may be overheating.

 

If it is the wire usually you can tell ... like there are animal bite marks or it is frayed and cut in certain parts.

 

To tell if it is settings usually you will have to get another computer and connect it the same way and if the other computer works fine but yours does not then it's something in the computer.

Well it's also affecting the wi-fi, it's not just this computer it's every computer in range. 

 

Could the router be going bad?

For what it's worth when my internet goes down the router setup will not load. Depending on the browser the message I get is basically page not available.

Another thing that happens, when my connection starts acting up and I unplug/replug the ethernet cable from the back of my computer, the connection gets better, for a time. But I think I might just be imagining that.
