WIreless router - internet connection cuts out

Router connects to computer fine but internet connection cuts out about three or four times a day. WHen I switch it on then off again at the mains it usually works fine then for another couple of hours but sometimes cuts out again a few minutes later. Could it be that the router is overheating?
It's a D-Link wireless router - sorry don't have the model number to hand - general advice please?

If you're connecting to the router via wireless, try preventing windows from controlling the power of the wireless card on your computer.

Device manager > network adapters > "double-click your wireless adapter" > power management

then uncheck the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option

I hope this helps
