Windows 7: Unusual Wireless Internet Problem with Multiple Devices

<< UPDATE >>
Before trying to make changes, I made a simple last attempt to simply turn off the router for a few minutes and back on again...

The red devices connected!

I'm currently waiting for the Samsung Tablet and the other XPERIA phone to get home. For now, I'll monitor the consistency along with the other green devices and post results. I won't be marking the thread solved as of yet.

So far, no changes to the router settings has been made. I'll see if it holds up when the other devices arrive. Thanks!

Always the first thing to do when having router issues.
If it constantly happens more and more, the router is dying.

@Kaktussoft:
The other devices arrived last night and they are still online until this afternoon (1:32pm here). I'm monitoring for the entire day today before I conclude. Internet stability always takes longer, but don't worry, I haven't forgotten about this thread.

@andrew129260:
True, I couldn't really believe all 3 smartphones are defective at the same time.

Yeah, 99% of the time its not the device that has the issue, its the router.

A good power cycle can do wonders at times.

Very true, Britton. *wine glass toast

Seeing as how the previously red devices are still online 10hrs later, I am now marking this thread solved.
Thank you everyone for your attention.
