Lately I've been having issues with my internet during certain periods at night. Around midnight or so I'll lose my ability to load webpages or play games online. My computer tells me that I'm connected to the router with full bars and when I try to repair the connection no problems are detected. This seems to only happen to my laptop since I can play online with my XBox 360 without any problem, not even lag.

My ISP is Verizon DSL.

Sounds like someone set up time restrictions on the router for your computer.

My dad said he didn't do anything like that, and no one else has access to my laptop.

You connected wireless or wired on the laptop?

If its wireless - find/download the driver for your wireless card, if they have just the driver get that if its driver with software you'll have no choice. Then remove the wireless card from device manager and any software for it in Add/Remove programs. Reboot and install with the new driver. Use Windows Zero Config if you can and not the software that normally loads with the driver. Joy?

If it happens after the new install, open a command prompt and type ping 4.2.2.2 and hit Enter. Any issues?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

I would if you can try connecting directly to the modem using your laptop and see if you are getting the same issue. If so then the problem exists with Verizon some how. If not then it is on your end. It is always good to eliminate as much as possible then you have less to look at. Just remember to do a run-cmd-ipconfig /release- ipconfig /renew in order to get a good address from the modem once you are directly connected.
