Why is my internet dropping out?

Episode 1447 (24:02)

Rene from Los Angeles, CA
Ethernet cable

Rene's internet access disconnects several times a day. Leo says he has the same problem and he knows it's the ISP. It could also be his mesh router, however. But the only way to check that is to use another router to eliminate it from the mix. Could it be a DDOS attack? Leo doesn't think so unless he knows of someone who is targeting him to keep him off the net. That's unlikely, though. It's probably just his ISP having issues.
