Can I restart my FTTC modem (ECI) - risk of lower speeds?


[link to this post]
 
I have not had FTTC installed for long and due to issues during setup the modem has already been restarted a few times. I still appear to be on full speed but I need to restart again. Is this safe to do? Can I just press the reset button on the modem or do I switch off at the mains? Thanks

I always power mine off/on - seems to work ok.

It's very odd to need to restart the modem if the speeds are OK. Wouldn't just messing with the router be sufficient?
