      I agree with what Scubbie mentioned earlier, about the only time the router needs switched off is:

      going on holiday for a period, in order to save electric
      to change the IP address
      to unlock it, if it has frozen
      to change the noise margin if you are having problems
      so that you can relocate it

      A drasticly lower sync seems to be the main reason for dlm kicking back in

      I set my Target Margin to 50db the other week
      i synced in a 4 meg or so cant remember

      That night dlm kicked into action
      even though i only did it the once

      I also renewed my contract the month before though
      so it may also be that
      but it was odd that it was the day i set the margin to 50

      This only applies to those unfortunate people on Connect. The BT training system varies from Sky LLU and benefits from being resynced once a day.
