home internet / WiFi keeps dropping connection

For the last 6 hours, My home internet / WiFi keeps dropping connection to all devices connected to WiFi and Ethernet while still being powered on. Sometimes lasting 5 minutes and other times lasting as long as 20 minutes, and has been repeating this cycle all day, I checked on AT&T website for a “diagnostic check” and also “outages in my area” and both things say nothings wrong. I have already restarted the router many times which has been doing nothing to help. Any help?

We understand that you are having trouble with your Wi-Fi connection, @Gavin_Borrego33.

 

The following are potential reasons why your Wi-Fi keeps dropping its connection:

  • Are there other electronic devices near your router?
    • Provide at least 3’ of separation from other electronics and appliances for less interference.
  • How is your router connected to the power source? Is it connected to a power-strip, directly to the wall outlet, a battery back-up unit, a GFCI outlet…?
    • Plug your router directly to a non-GFCI wall outlet to help isolate potential power issues.
  • Where is the router located in home? Is it in the basement, a cabinet, on the floor…?
    • Place the router in an open space so it can stay cool. Be sure to keep the router elevated off the ground.

If you have looked into these reasons, and you are still having trouble you might need to do a factory reset on your router. Doing a factory reset should help clear any custom settings that could be causing an interferrence.

 

Please reach back out if you need any additional assistance.

I've been having roughly the same issue ALL day today and periodically over the last 6 days.  Of course, I've had these issues since we got this service over 2 years ago and ATT CANNOT seem to fix it.

I work from home and noticed Wednesday some slowness.  That night we were in living room watching tv and playing games on our phone when I kept getting a connection notification on my game.  Every since then we've had this issue.  However, this is NOT new.  Every since we've had your service we've had a similar issue and when a technician comes they say nothing is wrong.  I am sick and tired of paying for service I am not getting.  I've restarted the gateway, cut off devices and back on.  You name it and we've tried it.  Internet is VITAL to my job.  This morning while starting my computer I got a message in Smart Home Manager that says Gateway Communication Lost.

Can someone PLEASE fix this before I have to end your service?
