Not certain, but *overnight* to me leads to thoughts of a daily cron job
resetting eth0. I presume that your daily cron jobs start at about 6:25
am (a Debian default, iirc) - anything in your logs around then
referring to it?
A possibility is that something is supposed to do a quick recycle - say,
obtain a new dhcp lease, and is failing at that time (such as requesting
just at the time that the network's dhcp server is for some reason
unavailable - maybe recycling, or its ethernet card is recycled.)
