      Angry Broadband turns off every night at 21:00 GMT

      I have been having a recurring issue where every day, at around 21:00 GMT, my Sky broadband goes out for about two to five minutes. I'm getting sick of this happening almost every day since I am always using the computer and the internet at that time. I want to be paying for a connection that doesn't drop out every time for no explained reason - I want my internet to be up and running 24/7.


      Is it Sky doing this? Or could there perhaps be some sort of maintenance going on? I would like to know why this is happening, especially at a time such as 21:00 GMT when everyone is still up.

      >Believe in Better

      Yeah, maybe when you stop turning off my internet every night and not explaining why, thanks.

      It may be due to some kind of electrical or wireless signal interference. I've heard of cases where central heating or something else operated by a timer has switched on at that time and caused the loss. Christmas tree lights, florescent lights too. Whilst working for another broadband provider there were also instances of electric garage doors causing the issue.

      Is the internet dropping out or is it your wireless connection that is dropping?Copy and paste your router Log here and someone may be able to suggest what is wrong. Router settings>Security tab>Logs.

      You are showing a large number of attempted intrusions. You could try power cycling the router by switching off the power for a few minutes then switch on again, this should give you a new IP address, which may cut these out. Unless you really require it, for bandwidth meter or such like, I would also disable 'Respond to ping' on the WAN connection if it is enabled. Some will disagree with this but I believe it is a security risk and it should cut down the intrusion attempts.

      Are you using AVAST & F@ST2504n ?

      I’ve seen several posts on Sky and Avast forums of people with similar problems since around 20th Nov when AVAST introduced “Home Network Security”
      I’ve been running RouterStats-Lites(v9.9) for a few days to log the pattern of cut offs.

      I can manually run a Home Network Security scan and it turns the ADSL connection off. It looks like AVAST runs this twice a day.
      Turning the feature off on each pc via Settings / Tools and selecting Home Network Security to OFF (and a reboot for it to take effect) seems to have cured the problem.
