    what happens if you go to start/run and type

    win98 winipcfg, release all, renew all

    2k ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew


    It sounds like it's your isp resetting the servers at night or something along that line so that you are losing your lease

    Hi theoneandonlybd,
    Call tech support and have them assign you a new IP address. I had the same problem with Cox. I called and we tried a few things and he assigned me a new IP address. It works great now!(Knock on wood)
