Changing the frequency seems to have solved the problem :)

Still not sure what caused it as they are in a rural area with no neighbours really close, but the problems gone.

Many thanks TerryNet

May have spoke too soon :(

Just been told that they have had the same problem but at 04:26pm since I changed the router frequency :eek:

The odds of that frequency conflicting with some local equipment would seem to be very slim!

Going to go through the frequency options for a few days and see what happens :confused:

Perhaps it actually has something to do with the lease from the ISP expiring or being renewed half way through the period, but recovering quickly. They don't do anything to regain connectivity, do they? When they switched from the router to a computer connected to the modem they would have gotten a new lease. Then when they switched back to the router it would have received a new lease, and the bewitching hour would have changed.

If the router's WAN section shows the lease obtained and expires times (mine doesn't) see if the new disconnect time coincides with the expires time or is half way through the period.

They do not have to do anything to regain connectivity and the downtime is very small.

There router doesnt show any information regarding the lease times, tho IPCONFIG shows
Code:
   Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Thursday, January 19, 2012 7:58:30 AM
   Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Saturday, January 21, 2012 7:58:30 PM

Since the short disconnect was bothering them I've replaced their router and everythings fine.
Thanks again for your help TerryNet.

You're welcome, and many thanks for reporting back with the solution. Guess we'll never know what kind of goblin got into that router, but it sure was strange. Those folks are very fortunate to have you looking out for them. :)
