Windows 7: Broadband Link is Currently Not Available

Broadband Link is Currently Not Available

OK so I already wrote all this once so give me a break if this gets brief. I have AT&T DSL and at the most inconvenient times I get sent to an AT&T page that states " The Broadband Link is Currently Not Available" It has a reset button at the bottom but there is no need because I can wait a moment and refresh and it will say problem solved please close the browser. This has the ability to cause lost work. I have read alot of forums blaming everything from the wiring to the phone lines in the house to the hardware, anyhow everything on this house is Wifi so I don't know if this problem persist over hard line but I assume it does because others have complained of it.
