Same here, been happening the past few nights around the same time each time. DownDetector shows a huge spike so it must be hitting a lot of people, people on Twitter and on here mentioning it also seem to be all across the country so it's not a local issue either. The broadband monitor I've got set up on Thinkbroadband shows the connection dropping anywhere from midnight to 1am every night since the 13th.
Weirdly, it doesn't seem to drop every website, since I'm still able to search on Google and can watch YouTube videos no problem. I was on a Discord call while on a game the other night and both myself and one of the guys I was on with started getting distorted audio on the call, and ended up dropping from the game connection. Connecting to a VPN totally sorted the issue for me for some reason.
I'd have thought it was a DNS issue, but I'm using the Cloudflare 22.214.171.124 DNS servers, so I doubt that's it since I shouldn't be getting anything from Virgin's DNS servers at all. It's getting pretty irritating at this point though, and I've got no doubt that if I phone up Virgin, they're going to be adamant that it's because the router is in modem mode, even though that's clearly not the issue.
