allquixotic: Sorry for no response. I haven't abandoned this question but to be able to test out a few things, I need to be home when the problems occur. I work away from the home during the day, so I probably won't be able to update this post/mark an answer until this weekend.

Doubtful, but worth checking. The device is WPA2 secure with a long, cryptic passcode.

That would be odd, seeing that his happens every day, even on the weekends. Still, I get your point but, if this was EM interference wouldn't the quality of our connection degrade? i.e., wouldn't our signal strength drop from, say 4-5 bars to 1-2? This doesn't seem to happen.

I'll take a look at the one PC that stays connected at our home during the day. I doubt that's the problem, though, but you never know for sure.

Also, thanks for the ICSI Netalyer link. I'll be sure to give that a run this evening, and tomorrow.

RE: WiFi comments. Yes, we use WiFi but I don't understand what would cause this problem to occur for only 1 hour of the day, always at the specified time, every single day. I will try to directly plug into the router, though and see if that helps. I should have tried that first but I didn't think about it since our WiFi has worked great, otherwise. Of course, the ideal (for me) would be to give up WiFi, but that would involve getting our house wired, plus, some of these devices don't have a way to directly wire into them. (iPhone, iPads, Apple TV... yes, we are an Apple house.)

kalengi: Yes, unfortunately I was one, too, until a month ago. Corporate policies are some times very... slow... to... change.

Yes, I am aware of how they operate. I'm honestly not sure much water got into the system (miraculously). It sat in the puddle for no more than 5 seconds, and I didn't feel any water moving back and forth, nor did anything drain out of it. Still, it took a nasty fall and has quite a gash in the aluminum.

Well, the odd thing is the sector has worked fine for a week. These images change out pretty frequently (I also have a thunderbolt display), so I see the same image at least twice a day. When it showed up as my background this morning, I saw the artifacting, but not before.
