Honestly wouldn’t worry about it too much. We’re all dealing with wonky wfh situations right now. Ideally I would email the interviewer immediately to try to reconnect; if not possible, I would email the recruiter or HR contact explaining what happened and offering as many times as possible ASAP to re-complete the interview

I gave my interviewers a heads up that I may possibly disconnect.

Depends. If the internet dropped right after a difficult question, you might be out of luck lol

The interviewer should have provided you a phone number at the start in case of a lost connection.

My computer crashed during an interview and I just called back in on my cell phone.
