Probe DOWN, does that mean my internet connection is dying?



My probe health status has been "down" a few times since i started it today, does this mean my internet connection is dying? I decided to run this because I keep getting random disconnects and connection problems (i hate windows 7).

this is probably not related to your internet connection at all.

please take a look at your probe health sensors live data.

Which values are very low/high for the time the probe health is down?
