      Can I turn the router off?

      Hi everyone, this is my first post ever so be gentle. I have just connected to Sky broardband and wanted to know is it possible to set it up to turn off at say 10pm on school nights and then back on at 7 in the morning? I know I could just unplug it but I wanted to know if I can set it up to switch off automatically at a set time?

      During the first 10 days it's not advisable to turn it off but once that's done you can - although you're probably better setting the router up with a schedule to limit the connection during those hours

      Ok thank you. Is it an easy thing to do? I just plugged the router into the telephone line and that was it. How do I change the settings on the router?

      Go to your web browser and type 192.168.0.1

      pass: sky

      If you've got the dg834gt you can flash it with DG teams firmware which gives you extended schedule options.

      Thank you for the information. I think it best if I call in an expert, this is way beyond my capabilities.
