My wireless connection is continuously dropping every 5 to 10 minutes. The laptop I have is an MSI GT60 gaming laptop. It was purchased roughly 1 month ago. This past Friday, November 29th, 2013. Around 8:30pm I lost my wireless signal. I did the troubleshoot. When it came back, 5 minutes later, I had to do another troubleshoot.
The wireless router is only a few months old. This is the router:

Now I'm not too sure, but I do run my laptop, IPhone 5 and Xbox 360 and my other family's wireless devices. Is there something I should do that will fix my wireless connection issue?

Check if the router's connection settings are set to "Connect automatically" , you can find this under WAN settings. If that doesn't work, try resetting your router to factory settings and do a firmware upgrade. Also make sure your devices are in the router's range and there is nothing blocking your signal, such as Bluetooth devices or just any other device that uses radio frequencies.
