A Wan LAN

How can we pinpoint whether our network trouble originates with our ISP or with our router?

We have a small home network running from a two year old Time Capsule with two external disks attached via powered hub. All our devices are Apple. Lately we've been dropping shares a lot and d/l speeds are about twenty percent lower. We also find that devices are "forgetting" their default networks and reverting to secondary ones, always on our same LAN except when it's a 5GHz device, when it grabs the neighbor's net. It's as if 5GHz is the last to re-load.
We had everything optimized and running at maximum speeds for many months. We'll give our ISP a call but we're hoping this might look familiar to someone as they may start out saying the trouble must be with our older router.
