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.

I assume you mean fibre optic, not lasER http://www.great-quotes-powerful-min...es/dr-evil.jpg

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?

right ok Laser link not fibre optic ya
there is nothing in the way of the link
what i was trying to say is that the internet comes though the laser link into our site from the school but for some reason the net does work till 12 but i have rang the school and they say the link is fine on there end plus the internet is working there end have check all the server our end and there fine ?

So you have full access to the netowkr accross the link, just no internet access (Until 12)?
25th May 2010, 11:37 AM #9
nope the link from the school is just for the internet connection
25th May 2010, 11:38 AM #10
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.

ok cool i have even contacted the support team for the link and there still saying that it is fine

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

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