What is wrong with my internet?

Like 2 weeks ago I was so satisfied with my internet, it's fast. About 2 days before:

I was playing TF2 and my modem suddenly restarted and my internet connection came down. This happends like 5-6 times a day. When it's down it stay for about 20min. Yesterday I unplugged the power cord from the modem and let it cool down. Now it doesn't do like that but it still goes down. For example now it's 6:05 and from morning to now it only came down 1 time but it came up in like 5-10 seconds. Sorry for my bad english.

    Your English is great :D

    What you should try first is unplug EVERYTHING that links to the internet. That includes the modem, and all the wires attached to it. Leave them all unplugged for around 5 minutes, and plug them all back in.

    If this problem just occurred without any warning, it could be a virus/spyware program. If you haven't already, download a antivirus and a antispyware. Download, install, update and scan with these programs.

    Remember that you must only have one antivirus running at any time. If you already have an antivirus, then don't download Avira Antivir

    If the programs find anything, delete all that it says to. Some last checks that you can do. If you have broadband, make sure you have a filter on every phone socket in the house.
