Internet is acting up.

Ever since yesterday, my wireless has been acting up. I'm able to connect to the network just fine, but my "connection" will only last a few minutes. After about 5-10 minutes, web pages will stop loading. Every time it does this I have to reset my router to get another 5-10 minutes of internet. It's incredibly frustrating. 

 

I've tried resetting my router, power-cycling my router, doing that ipconfig /release (/renew) thing. I'm just not sure what the problem is. It all started happening after I had to unplug my router in order to shift some stuff around in my room. Everything is plugged in the way it was... so I dunno. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. As you can probably tell I don't know much about computers, so please keep it simple :P

Try resetting your browser settings to defaults. Also check and see if your wireless driver needs an update.

Did you check and see if there are any driver updates? Also check for Windows updates, which could possible have a driver update.

Ok. I see your post says you powercycled the router. Did you powercycle your modem too or is it a all in one?

Well, there is a sequence you have to do. Unplug the modem AND the router, wait 30 sec, plug the modem back in, when all the lights come on roughly after a couple minutes, then you plug in the router. Is that what you did?
