I am having an issue with my internet connection. We have wireless connection in my home and we have comcast as our provider. My family can get online when I can't. I get bounced off and on from the internet all day. On occasion this happens when I am also on my aircard. Not sure if there is a conflict somewhere or what. I use firefox and really like it. I downloaded and used Avast. I also have a new modem from comcast and linkys and I re did all the settings. Any suggestions??

Wireless issues are typically because something else is interfering in the immediate vicinity of the area. Devices like microwaves, mobile phones, cordless telephones, anything that shares the same portion of the spectrum is prone to interference. Try and find a pattern to your disconnections - does it always die around lunchtime for example (microwaves)? Move closer to the router as something may be in the way that's causing the dropouts.
