      Should You Leave Your Router Connected?

      i got my Sky BB Max actived yesterday, but i am only getting around 3meg, was told my line is capable of 10meg.

      Should you leave your router on all the time? We turn it off and only turn it on of a night when we are going to use it.

      Re: Should You Leave Your Router Connected?

      Personally, I leave my router running 24/7 and have heard that they are designed to be used this way. May be better if you use the stands though, to ensure good air circulation for better cooling.

      Take a look at what other skyusers do:

      Sky router on or off?

      Most leave them turned on

      Take a look at this thread to try and improve your speed.
