Does anything else disconnect at 1am? Does your entire internet go off at 1am? What else happens at 1am?

Hi,

I'm suffering the exact same problem. 1am, on the dot, my MSN disconnects. Very annoying. It's only started happened since I changed my broadband provider. Never had problems before. The company aren't interested, so I hope I can get some help here

Thanks

I don't think so.
97% of the internet population connects using a dynamic IP address.

I would put the OP and subsequent issues down to an ISP problem though. Having said that, MSN tends to go up and down accessibility wise like a yo-yo sometimes and "unscheduled maintenance" comes around regularly like clockwork some weeks.

Well actually I used to have this problem, I used AOL, tiscali, pipex, v21, Sky, BT, UkOnline and many more (all non static IPs. Once I switched to NTL (static IP) it would not happen. We also tried loading 2 computers on two different networks, one on BT and one on NTL and the BT cut off directly at 1am but the NTL did not.

Also...

If I am right... you can apologise. If I am wrong... I will apologise for wasting time.

....whether the fact that you happened to switch to an ISP that gave you a static ip "fixed" this issue or not...doesn't make it solid advice...are you advising that the OP switch ISPs? what if they can't do that? what if they can't afford to purchase a static ip from their current ISP? what if their current ISP doesn't offer static IPs

there's more to giving advice than just thinking of what's worked for you once...you have to think of the feasibility of implementing the fix

Yes but when you think about it... that many ISPS, 8 different computers, 4 different routers and all I do is switch to a static IP and its fixed? What else could it be?

So personally its not just solid advice, its the only advice.
