If I get a ! and "No Internet Connection," is it almost always the router?

I'm staying in a home where the internet works fine for hours and then every now and the I get the "!" and the message "No Internet connection." Then, after some time, it starts working OK again.

Is this always a router problem? Is it possible it is something on my computer that does this?

Could be your service provider

My Internet service provider was unreliable, and would go out for a few hours at a time. I would receive that same message. I would unplug/restart your router, and toggle your wifi off and on. If it doesn't fix the problem, then it's probably out of your control.

It probably is your ISP...try resetting the modem. Also, if it still happens, try switching to a different channel on your router.
