Devices randomly losing internet connectivity

Message 1 of 1

So for the past 2-3 weeks, I've been having problems with devices losing internet access, both my main PC which is hardwire connected to the router as well as a netbook and iPad that are on wireless. One will lose it's internet, but others will be fine. Most of the time I have to disable the wireless, re-enable, and it will come back. With the wired connection, usually I can unplug, wait a few seconds and plug back in, but other times it requires a reboot of the device. Have tried rebooting the router with no success. The router is connected to the ONT via cat5, and I don't have TV, just phone and internet. Is my router dying? Anything to check in particular? It seems to be pretty random when it does happen, and as I said, it's both via wireless and via wired. They always show connection to the router, just not internet.
