Connection dropping same time every night

This has been an ongoing daily problem for only about a month now. We've had service for several years with no issues until now. I have an older ARRIS (502G) Modem provided by TWC/Spectrum. It's always just around 8pm every day. Our typical 100-150mbps goes down to a measly 20 and we're unable to do anything online at all. Spectrum is sending out a new modem this week but was hoping someone might have some insight prior to installing the new one.

Any ideas?

    I know it's no longer used but it was working just fine until a few weeks ago... we're getting a new one sometime this week they said. We weren't able to get a new one before now for whatever reason. Was just wondering why it would have started just out of the blue.

    That modem is an older unit which became obsolete when Spectrum upgraded your area,  so it needs to be replaced.  When you replace it, remember that you must also reset the router to its factory default settings.
