[Internet] Lake Mary, FL- HORRIBLE Wireless

We have not had any issues with our wireless until the last few months. All of a sudden we get NO signals in our back bedrooms. cannot watch a movie on amazon prime in the living room, and my ipod touch goes offline about every 5 minutes. So frustrating. Any suggestions on what to do? Do we just need a network extender or could it be the actual signal that's at fault? I have NO tech knowledge so sorry for the basic questions.

Try logging into the modem and changing the wifi channel....it may be that something in your house is interferring with it.

Let me know if you need anything. What that tells you is something in your environment is causing this...another router, your neighbor, something else in your home. For now it appears you are good though.

Or a microwave... unless the modems are Dual band. Everytime I run my microwave, my video over wifi degrades.
