I think that what is knocking you offline is a radio broadcast. Powerful radio frequency bursts can interrupt your wireless service.
It just started happening the last two weeks and I thought my girls were causing problems cause it happened after they got home from school. Then the
obvious hit me. Other people get home at that time too, and I began my mission to lock down my WIFI. Yeh, first it was the whole password thing.
That got hacked too. Then I locked down who can actually sign onto my system via mac address.
Now, with the tips to close SSID so ppl can't see my system and change the name of it with spaces, no one has knocked me off again. So, I am hoping
the problem is fixed. I live way out in the country, and I can't imagine radio signals suddenly causing problems, or I could say I am being targeted
by the government or those nasty gray aliens who just wanna have some fun pissing me off! Nah, I think it was some neighbor who is too cheap to buy
DSL and their kid wanting to DL a bunch of movies or God forbid Porn!
The last thing I need is some dirtbag using my WIFI to DL porn!
