    I currently have a DSL connection in my house. I use a Belkin Wireless-G Router and a Speedstream Modem. Since about lsat week, my connection will randomly drop, or lag really badly, but then moments later it will be fine. Also, sometimes it becomes so bad, that i must reset both the router and the modem. What could be causing this? It not just one computer either, all the computers on my network are experiencing this drop.

    Just a quick question: Is your wireless router password protected with at least WPA? If it's open others in the area could be sucking off your bandwidth causing a sudden drop in speed.

    Other wireless devices could cause interference (cordless phones), you might try changing the channel or moving the location of your router.
