I suggest you check the wired connectivity to the router by plugging-in your computer if you do not have an existing wired computer. It is possible that the router is intermittent via wired connection, too. If that is the case, you connect your computer directly to the modem to see if the modem has the same problem. In that way, you can isolate if it is a router problem or a problem with your modem from your ISP. If ever the connection directly to the modem is stable then proceed by performing a reset on the router. Reconfigure the router from scratch which means that you do not use backup for your router settings. Set a different wireless channel also on the router. Use 1, 3, 6, 9, or 11 for the 2.4 GHz network. Use as well WPA2 for the wireless security for both bands. As for the 5 GHz, you can have it on Auto and you can even name it differently from the 2.4 GHz network.

I have the same problems with all my wireless devices (smarthphone and Tablet), except with my notebook. I will reset my router and reset it.
One oddity is that I am using band mixed and mixed WPA2 password.
I think it has nothing to do because the wireless connection, it stays. What is the internet falls to the devices mentioned above.

i only have satellite receiver that use ethernet other than that all my devices connected wirelessly
the modem has no problem at all i set it to bridge mode with DHCP disabled , and i think reset will not fix anything cuz i made hard reset 2 weeks ago , the problem has nothing to do with Wifi channels cuz it happend on 2.4GHz + 5Ghz and i'm using WPA2 only on both networks , 5Ghz already named differently
i'm really regret how i bought Linksys router second time after i bought Linksys Wag160 which was totally **bleep**
i will rollback to classic firmware and test the **bleep** thing again :/
