Once you are up and running and have tweaked your speed as you wish, there is no need to reboot, unless you lose connection.

Thanks Hugsie it sounds like the moral of this particular story is "if it ain't broke don't fix it".Is rebooting mainly around speed of connection then?
Also what about my first question.Cheers.

No really it is aound making a connection, so if you have made changes to your set up and want to see if it had any effect you can force a reboot and see if your sync speed changes. Rebooting when you have a laggy connection due to low SNR can also help by syncing you at a lower speed to improve stability by raising your SNR.

Q1..No need really, I did but everything was working fine before I did
Q2..If like mentioned you have no problems , speeds are good then just leave it alone....It seems with SKY's network though that reboots are needed from time to time to fix the occasional slow downs that seem to happen..
By slow downs I mean all will be working well, then you notice pages are slow to load etc, doing speed checks at these times often gives me download speeds less than 512kbit, but a reboot puts me back over 2 mbits..this is obviously a fault with SKY's network and seems pretty widespread, but if the network was working right reboots shouldn't be needed...
I personally leave mine on because I've a 3 PC network in the house all in different rooms and means you can go to any of the PC's and just start using the net

Funny you should say that Kempshott 'cos I was umming and arring as to whether I should do the same thing when the flashes started.
I've enjoyed the answers given in this thread 'cos as I said previously I know my way around a few things,am not particularly techy but will never be afraid to ask any question,daft as it may sound at the time.
Many thanks to everybody,so far, who has taken the time to answer those questions in a respectful and informative fashion. Cheers.
