Slow loading tabs are crashing my wireless router every time.

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook appears to be crashing my wireless router remotely. If a tab is taking a few seconds to load, or something within a tab is buffering, like a video on Netflix, the router automatically resets. I know for sure the router is shutting off, because all of my other devices (phone, tablet) instantly lose their connection as well. 

 

The router restarts and everything returns to normal after I close whatever tab it was that was being slow. It happens with every browser as well (Chrome, Firefox, IE). This has never happened before a few hours ago. I updated my drivers and got nothing. Did the old "unplug router for a few seconds" thing and got nothing. I have no idea why this is happening. Anybody ever heard of this before?

Hey,

I had this problem a while back as well. Seems like your router might be on the last stages of its life or it could be you're having some technical issues with that website...maybe you should consider buying a new router. 

I'll give you some suggestions in case you are considering it. 

The NETGEAR AC750 is one of my favorites. In your case, the Netgear Genie App the router provides you with might come in good use to you. It's also relatively cheap. Let me know if this helps!
