    Reset your network.
    Sometimes modems pick up interference from nearby networks. To fix this, reboot the modem. The modem is setup to detect interference, and restarting the modem can cause the device to use a less congested wireless signal which could improve performance.
    Use the power buttons on your devices to turn them off, or unplug the power cables; wait 30 seconds, and then plug them back in.

    Check that there aren't conflicting signals.
    IF you're using a wireless router, make sure its signal isn't conflicting with a cordless phone in your home or a wireless camera. If the GHz on your router (usually 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz) match the GHz on your phone, your connection might be slower when the phone is in use. Try unplugging the phone base and remove the handset battery. Now, see if your wireless network connection is stable.
