Hello, I've had sky broadband for about 5 months now and I've noticed that each night at around 1am-3am the internet connection drops out. It will normally reconnect itself after a few minutes or I can reconnect it myself by disabling then re-enabling the connection.
The troubleshooter gives me a "The Local area connection adapter is disabled" error then reconnects back to the internet. Since the disconnects only usually happen in the middle of the night it hasn't been a huge bother but recently its started happening at more peak times too.
This happens every night that I can remember when using the connection between 1 and 3 am. The router is upstairs connected to my pc with an Ethernet cable so its not directly connected to the master socket and we've recently had another router placed downstairs to allow access to sky anytime+
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Your sync speed is very low, about half what you should have. Please plug the router into your test socket using only the ADSL cable supplied by Sky, take your stats and post them.
How to test your ADSL in the Master Test Socket
If you do not have a Test socket, plug the router on its own into the Master socket and disconnect everything else that is connected to the phone line. Do you have a monitored alarm?

Re: Internet drop-outs
Your line provider is responsible for the telephone wiring from the the Master or Test Socket (if you have one) to the telephone exchange. You are responsible for the wiring after the master/test socket.
Often there is a fault that the person at Sky cannot see, so don't panic. They have to advise you though, otherwise you could rightly claim that you were unaware of any charge.
