    Okay I have a nexus 7 (an android tablet). For the first 3 months it works wonderfully, but recently it has started disconnecting from the WiFi each night at about 12:15 a.m. It won't load any apps after. The WiFi signal is still strong, but the icon turns from blue to gray. I checked with my brother(just in case my dad set a timer) but he didn't notice anything so it works in the rest of the house.
    Does this happen to anyone else?

    He likely has your device filtered by IP or Mac address. So you are affected but the WiFi is still active. 12:15 is also a classic time many people select because they don't want to use straight up midnight since it coincides with the start of a new day and may be concerned that will confuse things on the routers scheduler.
