You don't give us much to go on.

How are you connected to the internet? E.g. dialup, DSL, cable.

Do you connect through a router? If so, make and model?

Do you have a wireless configuration?

Please, throw us a few crumbs, if you want an answer.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.

Apologies, wasn't very clear!

I lose internet connection everyday at 5pm, wireless router is what I use, from wXP, all other pc's in the office are fine, but mine is the main pc, and it seems to crash at 5pm with no access.

The router may have a blockout time set for that particular PC.

What make/model router and can you get into the router admin interface to check the settings?

Is it it the Internet that goes down or just the wireless connection.

If the other computers can still connect to the Internet I would start looking at what is killing the wireless connection.

Something like the cleaner coming in at 5:00 PM and switching on a vacuum cleaner.

You do know that accounts can be set to be denied access at certain times of the day? Check and see if there is a time limit set on the server for your account.
