Properly setup ppp profiles, using /etc/defaults/rc.conf (search for ppp) as a 
guide. Also read up on rc.conf(5), very useful info.

Then use 2 crontabs at the appropreate times, as simple as:
0 3 * * * /etc/rc.d/ppp stop <dayprofile>; /etc/rc.d/ppp start <nightprofile>
0 7 * * * /etc/rc.d/ppp stop <nightprofile>; /etc/rc.d/ppp start <dayprofile>


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
