Restart Router?

In the last few weeks I've often seen on these forums the advice to reset/restart the router apparently to get a better sync speed (whatever that is).
Is this generally worth trying? I assume this means selecting restart on the routers own pages?

Re: Restart Router?

If you restart too often you will end up with a LOWER sync speed. Try rebooting at different times of the day, rather than 3-4 times in a row. You can use the reboot option on the menu or switch it off/on.
Your sync speed is the speed you are connected to the exchange at.

Re: Restart Router?

So it's worth just trying the odd time just to see if it makes any difference?
What times are best? I assume busy times are a no no?

Busy or not doesn't make any difference, I find that mid afternoon is good, but YMMV. If you are happy with the speed then there is no need to,
