    In my room i have a space heater.....Everytime I turn it on my internet goes out.... (so now i'm freezing) It has a wireless remote but that can't be effecting my wireless because the whole modem goes dead, no connection can be made (i have cable) its on the other side of the room. Its not connected to the same outlet it so weird...its creepy
    Any thoughts, thanks

    power

    Even though the same outlet isn't used, probabaly all the outlets in that room are on the same circuit. If you overload the circuit, then one outlet or all outlets can be affected.

    I have the same thing happen alot. I have even overloaded it and shut down half my house because I was drawing too much power from 2 outlets in one room.

    Use a UPS if you have a grounded outlet.

    Good Luck
