Guys, in my home, with my wireless devices, I have to reconnect to my wireless router more and more often. Sometimes every 10 minutes I lose my connection. Is this how wireless routers die? What causes this?

Sometimes it's the firmware in the router causing this.
On other occasions is the advanced settings in the wireless part of the router that causes this.

Try to switch off any setting in the wireless part of your router that are considered "advanced".
Things to look for: "TX bursting", " "WMM", anything to do with power adjustments, "multicast",

Forgot to add that if you have a phone you can check the allocation of wireless channels in your area, to determine the best channel to put your wireless on.
I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&hl=en

Sometimes there are to many routers on the same channels, which mean they are fighting each other.
That program also allows you to measure your wireless signal strength in all parts of your house, to determine the optimal router settings.
