Intermittent Internet Service?
Just wanted to share a possible solution for anyone having intermittent internet service. I know this may not work for everyone but it’s worth giving it a try. Until recently I was having uninterrupted internet service. Then about a month ago, my internet started going out for minutes or hours at a time.
After spending frustrating hours with AT&T customer tech support and hours waiting on AT&T techs and even having my modem/router replaced, not to forget the endless times I rebooted the system, NOTHING WORKED. I was also informed the issue was due to an outage in the area, not so. Confirmed by the last AT&T tech who replaced the modem/router.
I found the issue to be related to equipment (modem/router) overheating. I tested my theory by lowering the AC to 75 degrees which caused my internet to reconnect and stay connected until I raised the AC to 77 degrees resulting in intermittent service. I opted to purchase a cooling fan made for PC, laptops, audio, modem (Amazon $18). Since then, I have had continuous internet service.
Like I mentioned before, this may not be a solution for all. But it’s worth giving it a try when all else fails. Try cooling down the modem/router.
