I am having disconnection problem since past 2 to 3 weeks, the modem will disconnect from internet then reconnect back, but after a short while it disconnect again.
Sometimes it works okay but other times it disconnect when I really need the internet. My modem is on 24 hours.
Sometimes my modem ethernet light blink in red and sometimes it blink in green then reconnects.
It's all happening and it seems like somebody just unplugged phone line then replugged. Only reason I am contacting late is I thought it could be temporary and ATT might be doing maintenance. But its happening regular basis since past 2, 3 weeks. Please help and fix the issue.

Okay, I have some questions for you:
1) What brand/model of modem do you have?
2) Did anything change before this happened? Added or disconnected new phone, answering machine, CallerID device.
3) Have you installed any new appliances, etc?
4) Do you know how your modem is connected? Coax? Existing phone cabling? dedicated cable run from the NID?
5) Do you have POTS or U-verse Voice?

Would you post a screenshot of your bitloading tab?

That comb-like pattern across the top of your bitloading chart should not be happening. You will likely require assistance from AT&T Technical Support to resolve this issue.
Please call AT&T Technical Support at 800-288-2020, and tell them the symptoms you've been experiencing. They should run a test on your line and be able to see your error counts and dispatch a Premise Tech. Depending on where you live, it is likely the Premise Tech will have to summon a "line guy" to look at the line. It could also be a hardware failure in your RG or in the VRAD itself.
