Here's a Christmas Puzzle. For the last four consecutive days my internet connection has ceased except for intermittent connections in the evenings. About dusk is when it occurs. From then on I can ping repeatedly and each ping is different. Some will get all four hits, some one of four, some none of four. A tech has been out here three times. We have replaced the phone line from the jack to the main machine. We replaced the line filters, we tested the incoming signal for loss at the jacks, we disconected all jacked lines except the ones leading to the modem (DSL). Yesterday we swapped the modem and double checked the security settings. Last night at dusk, it died on schedule. I am a reasonably decent hand with this kind of stuff. But I am now officially stumped. Anyone got any ideas. Thanks.
