(Miami, Oklahoma-AP) -- Thousands of Oklahomans went without Internet access when two routers went bad.
Routers in the Tulsa office of SBC Advanced Solutions Incorporated went out Wednesday, leaving DSL subscribers off-line.
A router is a device that directs information from one computer to another.
The first router kept customers off the Internet from about 9 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon. The second failure was from about 2 to 5 p-m.
Service went down again Thursday morning.
Subscribers in northeast Oklahoma from Tulsa to Miami were affected. Dial-up customers still had access.
SBC spokesman Marty Richter says router problems are rare.
