For some reason, my step dad decided to set an "internet timer", which basically shuts off our connection around 12:00 every night. Anyone know what causes this? How to get around it?
#3
find what the process is called and end the process. Or you could go to your add or remove programs section in control panel and try to find the name, and uninstall it?

Not the computer, Me and my brothers have seperate computers, and he has never touched mine, which rules out the idea of it being a program. I'm assuming it's router related or modem related. Plus he isn't here, so he isn't unplugging it. It shuts off the same time every night exactly, so it isn't manual. Quick guys, only 30 minutes left!

He probably just unplugs some things.

That's what my dad would do,
but he's not the most tech savvy bastard on the planet

Is that router connected to a computer? You have wireless going on? WE NEED MORE SPECIFICS DAMNIT!
#13
well, why dont you go looking around your modem then. Seems like a plan to me.

Just talk to your step dad about it and ask why he has it set up and see if he will take it off.

Oh, fuck off. It was funny in 2006, it's not funny now.

Anyway, threadstarter, he's probably found some program that acts as an outbound firewall blocking your connection to any outside hosts. Either that, or he just turs your modem off at 12:00.

Wireless modem, and the reason he did that is because my brothers always stay up the whole night playing games, so I suffer for it. I've already tried searching for other local modems, no luck.

Password is 'admin'. User name is the same, too.

I thought the username was administrator and the password was admin?


Try what I say if Smokey's idea doesn't work.

Thanks Smokey, but I've already tried that in both fields.


Hmm, that's the regular default, man.

Maybe your dad changed it. Is he tech savvy?

Definitely, I would say I am very tech savvy as well, but still not able to figure this out! I'll check for any "hardware" in the morning.
#25
my router has no pass its just admin for the user, maybe yours is the same?
my friends dad did this to him as well, but if your dad was slow enough to not block the time, put your pc clock back a few hours, if he did well i have no idea.

Well if your dad's a tech savvy I'd have to say you're ****ed. If all else fails I'd say buy your own router :p

Hmm. Check the power plug the router plugs into. There might be something it goes through, like another plug that looks like a box or something. It might be a timer.
#30
you might be able to create a new network on your router which would bypass any rules your dad put on the old network.

I've already looked for a timer box, and I tried the passwords site, no luck

Oh well. 15 minutes left then I'm off

So someone think fast!

Nah, not really. I'm doing a degree in computer networking, though.

Holy **** dude, me and you are in the same boat!

I like to stay around 12:30ish but my brother plays WoW or Warcraft III all night long.

My mom has done that before. Do you have charter security? That's what we had, and you needed a password to get into the 'parental controls' area, which allows you to change that.

Possibly, it might be on the parent's computer. I'll check tomorrow.
