Router Query

  RussB74 16:39 06 Oct 09

Hello Everyone

I have just started on broadband and am having a few small problems, could anyone please tell me if it`s necessary to leave the wireless router on all the time, when I turn my machine off the router needs a couple of hours before it`s ready to get on the internet.

I know the first 10 days or so will probably try my patience but it`s nice to get to know a couple of things.

Kind regards

I leave my router on 24/7, and I believe many others do the same, but some people prefer to turn theirs off.

I recommend leaving it on 24/7.

I only tern mine off if there is chance of a Storm.

It should only take a minute to connect after switching on

I turn mine off whenever the PC is shut down, Everything is on a Belkin surge protector strip with a single off switch.

It only takes as long as the PC takes to boot up before its up and ready.
