Quite offer the user name and password have been entered incorrectly. The first action I take is to reset the router back to factory sitting and re-enter your details again. Remember that spaces and punctuation has to be entered exactly as required by your isp. Passwords and sometimes user names are case sensitive. To reset most router there is a reset button at the back of the router which needs to be pressed for up to 30 seconds with power on to complete the reset. Then check your computer/laptop /Tablet to make sure that the password you have used is correct. I start with the router because that is normally the most troublesome.
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
There are signal boosters and repeaters available, but generally run in the $250 range for decent ones.
What you can do is get a wireless access point installed. It requires an ethernet cable to the router to connect it, but you can put that in the house close to where you are and feed off of it.
