      Do you have extensions in your house, even if you don't use them? If so, try plugging into the Test socket, if you have one, and see if the problem goes.

      You could also try opening the router stats pane and keep it in the corner of your screen as you browse. Keep your eye on the noise margin and see if it is dropping.

      It does not matter whether they are being used or not, if you have extensions they can effect your connection.
      It would do no harm to post your current stats.

      That does not look too bad at the moment. Keep it visible on your screen and watch the NM.
