      Sounds like you may have line problems and errors are getting too high and/or your noise margin is getting too low.

      Have a look at the first sticky in my signature at the bottom of this post.

      PS It's up to you whether you leave the router on all the time or turn it off. It is designed to be left on. Turning it off can clear errors but you shouldn't need to do this. Better in any event to stop the errors from happening in the first place.
