^Exactly what Andrews said.

 

WiFi is not the best thing to begin with but a lot of things can make it worse. Too many WiFi Router or Access-points on the same channel start canceling each other out. Each wall in between you and your router reduces the signal strength additionally. WiFi-Signals don't follow the hallway and walk around corners.

Think of it like a light bulb, the light spreads out, but every object in between you and the bulb casts a shadow. While it might still be bright behind it, the light intensity is reduced. More objects casting a shadow in a row means even less strength. All you need then is one interference and you connection drops for a short duration until everything is capable of reconnecting.

    So in today's training my internet cut-out on both Steam/ArmA and TS for approximately one minute. Whilst they were down my internet worked fine on other devices. I've had this happen before, though there seems to be no obvious cause, and it affects me randomly.

     

    Would anyone be able to suggest a cause or fix for this?

    When you say "other devices" you mean on a smartphone and/or other notebook/computer in the household?

    If the internet cuts-out on Steam/Arma and TS, does brwosing still work? Or Skype?

    Must have missed this when it was posted, it seems like it cuts out on my PC (TS/Steam/ArmA), but not my laptop/phone/etc. I can still browse the internet on those devices.

    This sounds like a bad usb wireless modem, since the other devices function and only the PC fails, I would check to see if you can connect via your laptop (not to play just to idle) and see if you drop.

     

    Try another USB external modem if you have one or RJ45 (hard cable) into your PC. 

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    /edit - log into your router and change wifi channels. This could prevent interference.

    Thanks for the assistance, if changing to WiFi settings doesn't work out I'll look into a new WiFi adapter, perhaps one that connects via PCI.
