I've been with Uverse for 3 months now. I've had a few problems but nothing major. However, for the past week my desktop starts losing it connection to the network starting in the afternoon, until around 9-10pm, it cannot connect to anything at all. The weird thing is that my laptop can connect to the WiFi, no problem. I've tried restarting the router, and unplugging/replugging it; still no internet!
Has anyone had this experience?

Vista, wired ethernet.
As I said, the wired ethernet works in the morning, then when I get home from work, it will have started to lose connection 'til it is completely gone. The laptop I have, however, continues to connect with WiFi with no problems.

It could be a trojan / virus / root kit and someone is using your computer - have you done a comprehensive malware scan lately?
Does that box have any special applications? Or an online backup program (and maybe you got the clock times reversed or put in 9:00 instead of 21:00 ...)?
If you do a ctrl-alt-delete and bring up the task manager, you can see applications that are running, and processes - the processes list also shows utilization ... you should be able to locate the application(s) or processes that are killing your throughput. There is also a window that shows network throughput, if some other application or process is hijacking your bandwidth, it should show up on that screen as 100% (or near) utilization.
