I was having a problem with my router a few weeks back where it would take (with PC on or off) around 30 minutes to load up to allow us to access the web.
I thought it must be on it's way out so I dug out from the box the 2nd router Sky had dispatched to me over a year ago when there was an issue with the internet which turned out it wasn't hardware as they said.
It seemed fine initially, however now it too takes 30 minutes (plus) to load up correctly to allow us to access the web.
Does anyone else have this issue, or can recommend a fix?
I turn the router off at night, should I be doing this?

Re: Router(s) issuesI turn the router off at night, should I be doing this?
The only time I would recommend turning off the router at night is in those few occasions where the line gets so noisy it reduces the router speed. There are not many places where this is necessary.
In saying that it should not take too long for the router to connect, try plugging it into the Test socket and see if that helps. If it does it probably means your internal wiring is causing interference, so you are probably loosing out on speed as well.

Re: Router(s) issues
Will leave it on from this point on. I thought we needed to turn it all off.
We don't have a test socket. Sounds daft and at one point BT Internet sent a guy out as they thought we were lying.
He came out opened the box and was shocked as there was only one socket.
Will be Wi-Fi'ed through the night now from this point on
