I think the wires are old copper since this house is so old,and no we don't have FIOS.
If your nearby neighbors have a cordless phone, their phone could be interfering with your wi-fi connection when they use it. You could try switching your wi-fi to a different channel and if that doesn't work, consider upgrading all of your computers to use wireless.

Here's a link to more tips on avoiding interference between wifi and cordless phones.
