Problem: I think, despite many hours of on site tech support/cable guys, my net connection is still dropping (the ‘cable light’ indicating communication to isp’ stays off when it should be solid) for 1-2min periods on a frequent but seemingly random basis.
My Approach: Before deciding my next course of action, I’d like to log exactly when the connection is dropping. The modem is plugged into my Apple Time capsule router. The log generated by time capsule cannot easily (trust me on this one) be stored on a computer and it overwrites itself often. So I am looking for a program, ideally cheap/free (on mac or pc) that will keep track of every time the connection drops/hangs. It automatically reconnects whenever the issue is gone.
I’ve tried a buncha mac progs and none provided this functionality. Whats the simplest way to automatically log when my connection drops?
