    We have discussed this just recently and in the past on here. A lot of times it is the router if Wireless. If using an Ethernet connection. It can be a bad cable or poorly punched down RJ-45 Keystone.

    It does help to know what manufacturer & model of router you have, along with if this is only with Wireless, or with both wired & wireless connections.

    After you check your router settings, make sure that you log out.
