I've been Bellsouth's (Now AT&T) DSL service for almost 6 years now and it's never given me an issue until now.
To put it simply, it disconnects randomly. I can tell by the connection timer in OS X that there's no rhyme or reason to it, either.
When I got home from work I had been connected for 23 hours, but about a half hour ago it just starts disconnecting at random. I'm trying to get my Haloes on but it never stays connected long enough to even get into a game, much less actually play the damn thing.
Should I get a new DSL modem or is this something on AT&T's end, you guys think?
However, if your modem light pattern shows the modem is online and you have a router, you'll want to remove it from the loop and directly connect your DSL modem and see if the problem persists.
Just straight up calling your ISP tech support exactly when the issue is happening is your best bet. They'll be able to tell if it's an issue on their end right away.
Sucks that it reset but it was still better than the 10-15 minutes I was getting last night.
