Network issues

Here we go.

For the past year and a half I have been running RoadRunner turbo on a D-Link DIR-625 with ZERO issues. About 3 weeks ago; I noticed an ip addy or two that I didn't recognize. I booted the nefarious ip's and set my security to WPA protection. From that day on; I lose net connection (not NETWORK) from once every 15 mins to once every hour; or even as little as 5 mins.

I have 2 360's (one wireless and one hardwired), 3 wireless pcs, one hardwired pc; 2 iPhones and one blackberry join the mix as well. I have never had a problem up until then.

I got sick of it and went out a bought a netgear WNR2000. Hooked it up and was thinking, "Sweet! I fixed it!!". To little avail; the net crashed in about an hour or so.

I changed everything from the MTU to the security settings to setting static ip's.

I have brighthouse coming today to look at my lines and the modem.

Help me please; this is killing me.

I have a wnr2000 setup per the Cnet Networking forum sticky and we have 2 360's, other machines, WPA-PSK and doing great.

However you have more wifi devices than we do. Maybe you'll have to setup more than one WAP? We discuss how at about post 18 of the forum's sticky.

Well, the gent from brighthouse came about 5 hours ago.

He replaced my two year old modem and went to look at the cable node in my back yard. Well, turns out one of the RG6 cables in the node was rusty. He replaced that, my modem, and I threw the router back to normal settings. So far, we played ~4 hrs of CoD:MW2 on our xbox's and all went well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
