Now that my Telephone Exchange has been upgraded, and I can at last get ADSL, I have been setting up my Modem/Router. I have it plugged into the same mains socket as my computers. This means that when I turn my computers on, the Modem/Router is turned on as well, and is connected to the Internet by the time the computers boot up. This is fine and working beautifully. All I am wondering, is if turning the Modem/Router on and off, is in any way harmful to it. I could of course leave it turned on, and connected to the Internet, all the time if I wished, even when the computers are off.
