    What is getting switched on at 12? Does someone come in and switch on their PC/photo copier/ fan ect at 12?

    If it is regular like that then look for a human turning stuff off to save power and the planet ect.

    Sound's plausable to me, does somebody at the other school start at 12, come's in and first thing they do (I usually do) is make a cuppa, and bang your internet is on, it may be that the switch and the kettle are on the same plug socket? Who know's, stranger thing's have happened before!

    Laser links are used in some areas as direct line of sight wireless links...

    Really! Wow, they said you should learn something new everyday! What happens if a pigeon flys between the laser?

    So you have full access to the netowkr accross the link, just no internet access (Until 12)?

    Just to clarify, at 12 O'clock the internet goes down? Or the internet becomes available?

    It may be worth visiting both sites when the laser sender / receiver are plugged in to see what else is plugged into the same socket, these types of issues are always problematic as there is no definitive cause I can see.

    I'd agree with the suggestions, actualy visit the other site before 12pm and check the kit is powered on and working with their network.

    The only other thing I can think of is the link being effected by direct sunlight? There might be some sort of hood or filter missing off one end, causing it no to work in direct sunlight. Sounds a bit far fetched though.

    I dont think external support are going to be any use to you here postie!

    If there are two of you available then maybe have one of you at each end to see what happens when the link becomes available?

    Is it exactly on 12pm every day, if so then the sunlight idea would be impossible, but a good idea :-)
