Losing Internet Connection Sporadically, "Node 192.168.1.XX is down"
About every 10 to 20 minutes, I lose my internet connection. My AT&T router indicates that I am still connected to the broadband service, but my PC notifies me that I am not connected. I have no experience with networking, but I was able to view the event log stored in my U-verse router, and it seems like these down times correlate to a "down node", whatever that means. Both wired and wireless devices lose the connection. If anyone could explain this to me and help me find a solution, I would be forever grateful!
It might also be helpful to know that I have a second linksy router connected to my AT&T router that I use as an extender. This second router is connected to the AT&T router by LAN, and the two Wi-Fi signals have distinct SSIDs. I don't know if having this set up could contribute to the problem.
