I'm running Windows 7 64 bit with a Linksys WAG 320N modem.

The last few days my internet disconnects every night at roughly 12:30. I have checked my wireless drivers in devices and the part to automatically disconnect is unticked.

I can't find anything in the modem to automatically shutdown

Anyhelp would be greatfully appreciated

It it possible that you have an dynamic IP address from your ISP and the lease is renewed daily?

might be a reception problem, this happens to me in some coffee shops when they use a device on schedule that disrupts the signal

one place it happens when they have a delivery, the delivery truck somehow disrupts their signal at this coffee shop

"Just because it was so in the past does not make it so in the future."

ISPs change practices constantly. If their customer base has gone up they will be more likely to disconnect periodically. It sure sounds like the lease expiring.

It could be your router renewing the lease too, but if you have not changed settings or updated firmware that is unlikely.

Optin 3 is a small power spike enough to upset the router, but not anything with a heftier power supply. If you are up when it happens watch the router lights to see if the router is reconnecting.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
