    Window Air conditioner shuts the internet off why and how to fix?

    Whenever we turn on the window air condition it shuts off the internet temporailty and sometimes will randomly shut it off when its on. Why does it do this is there something I can do? The internet box just resets. This sucks when on a certain page on the internet or I am on a online game and I get booted out. It seems to affect a few other devices in the house too.

    It sounds like you may have too many devices being powered by the same circuit.  Try moving your computer or router to another electrical outlet.

    Air conditioning can be tough.  One thing that happens to small aircon units is the starting capacitor will go and when the unit starts it will bog down (drop the voltage on circuits in your place) and cause faults in other things.  If you have extra circuits, I would do like Shawn said and move it to another circuit.

    If there are only a few circuits, I would have someone check the starting capacitor on the aircon.
