My Router Loses Connection Seemingly When I Turn on my PC

Alright, so, 3/4 times I have turned on my PC for the past few weeks the internet completely shuts off. The router (which sits on top of my PC in my office) the connection status lights either turn off or go orange. I obviously have no internet when this happens and cannot access the router control panel, its as if I just reset it. I have 3 devices connected to it via ethernet (my PC, SO's PC, and a Phillips Hue Bridge) and several others on wifi at any given time. I have a gigabit plan through Verizon and I use a Netgear R6700v3 Nighthawk. I would appreciate any help and I've tried a few things so far:

- Restarted the router multiple times

- Got rid of high bandwidth use start up programs

- Updating the router firmware

- Making sure that my router's auto-update feature is off

 

Thank you in advance!

I am just shooting in the dark here. Are they all connected to the same power source? I'm out of ideas since you did pretty much did all the things I would suggest you doing. Let me know where things go, very interesting
