Right now I am posting from the family computer. My computer, which is in my room, lacks a connection despite sharing a wireless connection with this computer. Normally that might just sound like a connection problem the only catch is that the computer in my room is the one with the main connection. Our ISP is Charter and our computer connects using Linksys wireless router. For some strange reason my computer (the one that I'm not on) has been randomly loosing it's signal for hours at a time then randomly re-connecting. I have a very basic knowledge of computers and usually about the best I can do is click the "Diagnose and Repair" option and hope for the best. The thing is that I've even gone as far as using system recovery and I'm still plagued with this problem.

I use Windows Defender, Norton, and Comodo to protect my computer from viruses and I always make sure to scan any software I download for bugs. I've also tried shutting off all of them in an attempt to check if it is the multiple anti-virus software that is messing with my computer's connection. Nothing I do seems to work and their are times when my connection runs smoothly for days without trouble. I'm not really sure what it is and I don't really know what it could be. I posted here in the hopes that maybe someone could help me (although that's rather obvious, huh?). Does this sound like a known virus or is it perhaps the result of someone leeching off of my connection? If anyone can shed some light on the situation I'd be really grateful.
