Maybe your pc consumes too much power. Try to wait when you boot your pc up to see if it helps. Or maybe it is the supplier or the age of the router that is causing the problem.

wait when I boot my PC? what do u mean?
i boot up my PC I press on the button and then after couple seconds the internet cuts off and 2mins and comeback again
idk tbh
 
I don't have to reboot my router
@Why_Me probably meant there may be something 'stuck' in your router software. A reboot is standard first troubleshooting step with any software or hardware problem, quite often all that's needed to 'unstick' whatever was 'stuck'.

wait when you boot your pc
I'm confused by that too.

Should he wait near the router, or near the PC, or leave the room altogether?

guys i think it's because the pc and the router are on the same circuit they are on the same wall but different side
so whenever I turn on my PC it consumes a lot of electricity at first so it makes the router electricity drop for couple seconds
I think I have to move the router to another circuit

Have you checked your filters , the ones you plug your phone wire and internet wire into , you should have one on every phone line socket and shy if you have it. If you have a spare one swap them round , if you dont have a spare one remove them all and replace them one at a time. A faulty filty can cause problems with both internet and phones

Forget the fact your internet is going down .... if you have problems with only 2 items on your wall outlet you need to get it checked

you dont need to get a wall socket tester as expensive as this as their are cheaper ones around , i used one all the time at work , the combination of the light pattern will tell you your problem

DONT attempt repairs yourself get a qualified electrician

it's either the ethernet cable or the ethernet port on the router cuz I turned my PC twice without the cable connected to it and nothing happens and twice with the cable connected and internet gets cut off so it's cable or the port on the router

check your pc's settings to see how it is set to connect to the internet , i use ethernet but when i got my latest pc the builders had set the pc to connect by wi-fi so it was trying to use both methods at the same time and it caused me a few problems until i discovered what they had done.
