Why does Uverse lose signal every night at 11 pm, and then several times after that?

Every night. Same thing. Last 6 months, since I signed up. 11 pm, signal goes out. Between 11 and 3 it will go out sometimes 5 or 6 times. Can't watch programs. I see this is a common, ongoing problem for years. Why is that? You're at&t for goodness sakes. Is this the best you can do?

I have been having this problem for a year now and nothing has been done or figured out. I’m close to switching services.

Usually when this sort of thing happens, you have:

1) A line that is barely making do in providing you with your requested bandwidth, AND

2) Something generating intermittent interference, OR

3) A connection in the line that is temperature/humidity sensitive

 

I'd start by looking at the line stats from your Gateway (http://192.168.1.254/ , Broadband tab, look for the table with the sync rates, attenuation, SNR and error counts).  Make a screenshot of that and post as a reply and we'll have a look see and tell you how to proceed.

This is still happening.  You are charging me full price and turning off my TV at your convivence.  That is not any way to do business.  If this many people are having the issue you cannot tell me you don't know what is happening.  Please stop this.

@germannl ,

 

It happens to different people for different specific reasons, normally related to their individual home or service line, typically:

 

1) A line that is barely making do in providing you with your requested bandwidth, AND

2) Something generating intermittent interference (either in your home or nearby), OR

3) A connection in the line that is temperature/humidity sensitive

For an example of how hard it can be to track down the source of interference, here's an example of interference that knocked out Internet access to a whole village at the same time every morning:

We are here to help with your Uverse TV service, @germannl,

 

Uverse TV does run on Internet as @JefferMC stated.

 

Are you receiving any error messages or codes on your Uverse receiver?

 

Try restarting your main router and your Uverse TV receiver.

  • The Uverse receiver needs a stable Internet connection to work properly. If unstable, users will have trouble with using their service.

You can also use our Smart Home Manager to help diagnose and troubleshoot any Internet troubles.

 

Let us know if this helps.

Um, thanks, Max, but I did not say that U-verse runs on the Internet.  Some parts of U-verse do (e.g. the Mobile App, the music service and possibly OnDemand), but the U-verse IPTV signal actually doesn't run "on the Internet".  It does, however, run on the same AT&T network connection as your AT&T Internet service and something that affects one often affects the other.

Wow, I thought I was the only one that was hacked by the 11pm bandit. What is going on? Did anyone figure out why this is happening?

It happens to different people for different specific reasons, normally related to their individual home or service line.  If you had read my previous reply, you would have read that.  It could be happening to you and another poster for the same or completely different reasons.  If you'd like to troubleshoot your issue, we'd be happy to help you.

Yeah, what @JefferMC said.  Call att and have them perform a line quality test.  This will verify the integrity of the service to your gateway.  Ensure this baseline is set before taking additional steps.

I have been having the same issue  every night at  11:00 pm. Also thru out the day as well. I have had this service for over a year. I am thinking about going back to Spectrum as I never had these  problems. Although I can reboot the receiver and is a easy fix, it is very annoying not to mention it always seems to happen at the very end of a movie or TV show.  ATT please correct on your end as there seems to be a lot of unhappy customers. Not to mention, the internet is always unstable and goes out several times a day also.
