Whats best to do,leave your modem router on all the time or switch it off at night.Ive heard people saying if you switch off and on bt might do strange things to your line and i only get 512 at the moment and dont want to end up with no broadband connection,due to them thinking the line is noisy or something.Anyone advise please.

It won't make any difference so long as you don't do it lots of times in quick succession.

Having said that, routers are designed to be left on all the time, and some folks reckon that unplugging them every night could cause problems with the router itself.

I leave all of mine on 24/7, except for when I'll be away from my connections for more than a day or two.

Thanks James,they might be simple questions but i looked around the netgear website and couldnt find an answer to the simple question i asked.
