    Losing part of the Internet-connection, from time to time.

    I have expired some odd problem during the last 5 days. During daytime, I
    can use my Internet-connection just fine (everything works (www, ftp,
    mail, ssh etc) and has normal speed). But then the evening comes
    (somewhere around 7pm the www just stop and stying away for a couple of
    hoers, but just the wild wild web the other (ftp, mail news, ssh etc) work
    fine (well fine,, it is slow but still useful).

    What I have tried is to restart the modem and the router. I have tried to
    connect directly to the modem. I have tried names instead of IP-numbers
    for my DNS. No luck, any ideas of what it can be?
    Can it be that my ISP get owerloaded between 7pm and 10pm?

    Almost certainly, particularly if it's a domestic (home user) ISP.

    And the relevance to comp.security.firewalls is...?

    The NG should be happy it's getting any traffic. :)

    I too have experienced similar problems on my antiquated dial up
    service. Sometimes I lose the web, but can email and usenet just
    fine with no problems. On occasion, it comes back. Most of the time
    it requires a re-connect.

    If yours is happening at predictable times of the day every day,
    then your ISP could be throttling bandwidth usage. You should ask
    them. There was a recent FCC case regarding this. A few companies
    got spanked for doing this and doing it without notification to
    its customers.

    I sit on a so-called broadband (coaxial-cable 24Mbit/1Mbit). It is a few
    years old now, but not antique. :-)
    The same scenario every night between approximately 7pm and 10pm.
    My ISP has started to launch a faster subscription the last few days
    (25-50Mbit/7-10Mbit), it may be that.
    Before I complain to the Swedish Consumers-Department (which probably can
    be likened to the FCC) I will try to talk to the Support on this, but
    every time I tried to call, I hear this ghost telling me 'that there are
    many who call right now, try again later' (I have tried many times now,
    perhaps, to many).

    Have you tried emailing support? At least you don't have to
    sit on hold "for the next avaialable representative" for an
    hour.
