    I have a Belkin N wireless router and when I play my online games(Blackshot) at 8pm-12pm,I will keep disconnecting,and when i take a glance at my router,sometimes I manage to see the modem light blinking amber and the internet with totally no light,but the blue light for both the modem and internet will then return within 5-10 seconds. Any idea what is the problem with this ?

    P.S. I do not have these problems when I play my online games like Blackshot at around 12am onwards till the wee hours in the morning.

    Help is very much appreciated.

    Do you have the same problem with a computer connected directly to the modem?

    Did you remember to power cycle the modem when switching devices? Or, if you have (A)DSL, do you need to use PPPoE and your account/password?
