Last night, my AppleTV kept dropping it's WiFi connection. It would stay on then off in about 10 seconds. My password was entered correctly in and every time. I even tried my different router (I have 2, my TimeCapsule and my VZW FiOS receiver). That didn't work. Kept doing the same thing. The only thing that did work was a direction connection through the ethernet port. I have an APE behind there for my DVR on demand and the audio through my receiver. I could always get a splitter but I don't know this started happening all of a sudden. I have turned it off, restarted, updated software, still the same issues. With the splitter, would that degrade the speed of the devices connected to it?
