Question

Locked

Lose internet connection periodically.

By Bev-Phil ·
I have a Speedstream 5260 DSL modem hooked to a Netgear MR814 wireless router. I use WXP. My ISP is SW Bell (AT&T) I lose access to the internet about three times a day. To regain it I need to either repower the modem or the router or both. How is this overcome?
