Does anyone else have AT&T DSL?
If you do, have you noticed a regular once or so per hour dropout of service?
About once per hour, service on our DSL drops out for about 4 or 5 minutes. Everything looks OK, but there is no activity, no connection to internet, and all browsers report a lost connection. Mozilla often switches to "offline" mode partway into a dropout.
it appears as if At&T is deliberately doing a "rolling blackout" to stretch their service a little farther. it does not matter if you are using or not using the internet, it may freeze up in the middle of a download.
yes, I am certain this is not a virus, etc, it is definitely at the ISP end of the wire, actual reason unknown.
Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this, or if it may be local to this area only
