My cable modem will "drop" wifi devices at ramdom. not 1 device but cell phones netboxes and roku's. We don't "over use" the bandwidth, only one or two at any one time. My new Note3 works in every location EXCEPT my home. Will keep wifi for 30 sec's and drop it, will not stay connected for over 5 mins ever. My home is NOT very large, and I have experience with tech, this is a new one on me.... Help? I don't want to pay 75$ for some guy to not fix it.
