newkojak, you must have been reading my mind. ;-) One of the first things I checked when I lost the signal was if there were any other networks on the same channel. I didn't think so, being in a rural/residential area where most of the homes have one acre lots, but you never know. Once in a while I pick up a very weak Netgear signal, but then it disappears. I really think the router is crapping out. If it isn't that, then Comcast has some explaining to do because I already bought a new modem and that didn't fix the problem, so if the new router doesn't fix the issue, and considering that it's happening on every computer in the house, it has to be the ISP that's dropping the ball. <br><br>
