A few weeks ago I started losing my connection to the Internet once in a while, then it became frequent. I bought a new wireless N adapter to replace my old wireless G one, but the problem hasn’t gone away.

It doesn’t seem to be dependent on load at all, but it could be interference since I’m on the 3rd floor and the router’s in the basement. However, nothing has changed as far as positioning… so I’m not sure.

Could the router be dying? It is about 4-5 years old.

I’m thinking I want to replace my limited wireless G router with a shiny new, 300mB-capable wireless N. I’m a bit dismayed by the poor reviews I see when looking at routers on Newegg and Tiger Direct. Does anyone have any suggestions? Besides moving the router to the second floor, which could be done if absolutely necessary.
