Internet Cutting Out

  1. Hi all,

    I recently moved to a new apartment and have a bit of a weird set up. The modem/router are in one room, and my main PC is connected via two ethernet Cat7 cables and a F-to-F connector. My WiFi has had a few issues cutting out, but I've been able to work on a remote desktop application successfully so I'm thinking it's actually the router or the connector that's the issue.

    I just had webpages stop loading and double checked on my phone while connected to WiFi, and it also didn't respond, so leaning toward the router. I checked the logs, and it had this:

    Time Priority Code Message

    Can anyone confirm from those errors if it's likely a router, connector, or possibly provider issue?

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm no techie but I don't think being connected via "TWO ethernet Cat7 cables" is necessary.

    "a bit of a weird set up" is the last thing you need. Go for something straightforward or you'll be spending most of your spare time on this. Use a single ethernet cable or try Home-plugs if wireless won't do the job. Think around the problem. There are usually a few alternative solutions.
