Wifi disconnects at same time every day

For the past week or so my wifi is disconnecting at approx 21:30-21:32 every night. The downtime is usually around 60 seconds, before all of my devices reconnect to the wifi. I've watched the router and nothing appears to change with it at this time - it remains on a constant blue light.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Re: Wifi disconnects at same time every day

Its possible that another wireless network is causing interference, and the home hub has forced a wireless channel change, that would cause devices to disconnect and then reconnect.

Depending on which home hub you have, then turning off smart wireless would prove whether that was the cause.

Re: Wifi disconnects at same time every day

I rescanned the wireless channels, but that didn't seem to have any effect. Disconnect happened again last night at 21:32.

Here's a link to the relevant section of the event log, if that's any help.

Do you have anything in your house on a timer, such as central heating, security lights etc.

There's the boiler, but nothing has changed with it so I don't see why it should start interfering in the last week after years of being fine.

Does the time the boiler switches on or off coincide with the disconnects?

Things go faulty, it might be contacts are arcing rather than breaking cleanly.
