      Router keeps disconnecting - Cant even connect local.

      Hi, i recently swiched over from BT to Sky. Im not sure what router model it is but its black and lays horizontal.

      At random times - 1 min to 30 mins - it keeps dissconnecting from the internet and im unable to connect to it through my browser on the local network. Iv turned off uPnP settings but still it continues. Any thoughts? is this issue common?

      Many thanks.

      Im not sure what router model it is but its black and lays horizontal.
      Could be overheating, the Sky router is supplied with legs/a base which enables it to be stood on end. If air is not circulating freely around the router, or any electronic device for that matter, it can lead to its early demise.
