QUESTION: right now it seems to be at a point where i can connect via wifi but occasionally i will have to reenter my wifi password. however i still have trouble connecting via ethernet. any ideas?

Answer
I would first check with your ISP and see if they can detect any problems with your signal. If they say its clean, you might consider replacing your router. You can check the singal bu connecting a PC directly to the cable modem.

Hope this helps,
