Can I be too close to the router?

Our internet provider replaced our router with a Hitron a couple months back. No problems, it worked great. Then last week I started having a weird issue. Our router is in our living room and anytime I use my computer there I cannot stay connected to the network. It will connect for a minute or so and then kick me off and try to reconnect... then kick me off and try to connect. The cycle goes on and on.

 

What makes this strange to me is that if I go in the next room (or any other room in the house) it works just fine. No problems at all. It's only an issue when I'm in the same room as the modem and it's only my computer. My smart tv is fine. My wife's computer will work fine. Our phones connect fine. Only my computer and only in the living room. I've checked the configurations on my computer and, to the best of my admittedly limited knowledge, nothing has changed. It seems like I'm too close to the router. That can't be it, can it?

 

Any insight is appreciated.
