If one is on line a whole bunch, you'll get a message that there is Decreased or No connectivity...
what it is ...is that your ISP is assigning you to crud servers...
they keep the 'Tier1 equivelent' network of servers for the priority clients
, we commoners are the riff-raff to be content with the crumbs
from the table.
i'v been kicked off-line for up to 10hours because the tourists jammed in the hotels were all gaming at once & the Local 'mandated' Monopolies
infrastructure is inadequate
Glad you had a technician come replace your router/modem (hardware device)... when i switched mine out, the Cable people behind the counter handed me
a box... it took me 4 hours to get the verification to get back on line with a newer, less defective hardware device... even though the guy in India
was helpful---he needed authorization that i was changing connection devices on the account from several layers of $$ hungry cable workers/techs.
my TWC supplier has realteck & scientific atlanta devices which tend to overheat & lock you out...its not the servers in that case...
you better investigate further....
I keep a Local-Area-Connection icon in my tray, one click shows me the volume of connectivity/how long i've been on---another
click>'support' tell me address ISP, server lease, and their identity,
i click>'details' tells me all the defaults, DHCP servers, DNS servers, etc
i think its a handy app. to have in your tool tray, just for knowing just where you stand with your internet connection
control panel>system>hardware> turn on the local connection monitor
