    it started three days ago, using a wireless network, the Internet is running for about 10 minutes and then that's it, but when I restart the router, it starts working again and the problem recurs every moment. but what drives me crazy is that the modem shows that there is internet and everything is okay
    anyone have any ideas ?

    Is the modem also your router?

    If it's separate, then I would confirm it's not an issue with the router by going direct to the modem to see if the issue persists.

    If it doesn't then we would troubleshoot the router.

    How many wireless devices? If only one, it could be the wireless adapter in that device.
    If several and all lose wireless than as James posted above, the router needs troubleshooting.

    you may need to replace the router. The wifi function inside the router seems defective. i had the same issue a few years ago. Wifi dropped automatically but the wired connection was still good.
