      DLM and Turning the Router On/Off

      Hi, Im on DLM right now. My uploads great 796kb, but havnt seen the downstream improve over the last 4 days....

      Anyway, if I turn the router on and off briefly will this make a significent difference and interfere with DLM?

      I normally keep it on 24/7 however every so often the amber light appears on the router meaning I have to restart to get my connection running again. It happens at least once a day.

      I want to get the best out of DLM but Im worried if I turn it on and off it may have a bad knock on effect? Ive read alot of posts with people saying DO NOT turn it off. Can anyone fill me in with the facts?

      Many thanks.

      Re: DLM and Turning the Router On/Off

      When the amber light appears, leave it for a while and it should resync itself. DLM switches your connection on and off at least once a day, if you interfere with it then, it may think it is a fault on the line. It should reconnect automatically in one or two minutes.
