    Ring your internet supplier back, and ask them to talk you through changing your wireless channel (its pretty simple to do but they will have to tell you how as you have to go to a specific website that they will tell you).

    Basically all wireless internet routers are supplied fixed to a channel. Normally this is channel 3 or 6 (there are normally 13 channels I think). This means that every single person on your road with wireless internet is on the same channel. As a result you end up getting knocked off the channel and disconnecting! Very very frustrating! I had this problem, rang virgin media (my supplier) and eventually they suggested I change the channel and talked me through it. Changed to channel 13 and havent been disconnected once in 3 months! Before it was the same as you - I was being disconnected every 10 seconds and taking me several minutes to reconnect every time!

    Really hope this helps xxx
