Recently every night my desktop loses internet connection at the very same time. At 9:00 pm the connection drops until about 9:15 to 9:25 pm. It is only this one desktop. One other desktop and two notebooks remain connected. Not sure how long this has been happening but I am aware of it for the past 3 nights. Both desktops are wired to the router and both notebooks are wireless, all using the same modem and router. Also last night the offending computer slowed down to an absolute crawl during this time. The other two nights I did not notice it very much. The problem computer is running XP Pro. I have Eset running Anti-Virus, Spyware, Firewall and Malwarebytes running real time all the time. Both have daily updates. Scans by Malwarebytes showed a couple hits that were removed but the nightly disconnect is still occurring. Same with Eset. The only reason I suspect a Virus or Malware is because the other computers hooked to the same router/modem are not afflicted.
Thanks for any advice.
