    We're connected with Charter cable.. I've noticed that the connection resets every 24hrs on the dot almost. Any recommendations on stopping this?

    The DHCP lease is probably set to renew every 24 hours.

    Yup 10-1 it is your lease being renewed.
    Just be happy it is on a regular schedule.

    Is it causing you any problems?

    No, it's not causing any trouble. Just noticed it one day and wondered... Thanks for the replies

    Some cable companies will give you a static IP address if you request one, mine gave me one.
