To start. When Iím not using my router, I like to turn it off. Always done it and never had a problem before. This is only once a day normally.
I have been advised in the past that turning my router off won't affect my line. I have been advised to leave my modem on, as that syncs up with the cabinet and exchange, not the router.
I also have been told that so long as you don't switch your router off more than about, three times a day, then DLM should not see it as a problem.
Today I asked about disconnecting the red Ethernet cable and have been told, that disconnecting the cable from the wan port, would be the same as switching your router off and will register as a disconnection at the exchange. That will trigger DLM and can slow me down.
So what is correct?
