Simple question - is it sensible/practical to turn off the BT Home-Hub when it is not in use? I am running a six year old Dell Dimension 1100 via an ethernet cable from it and an HP Netbook,wire free but I turn these off when not in use.
BT's recommendation is to leave the hub powered up 24/7 but many switch it off at night and on again in the morning without any real problems
However if you switch it off and on a few time in a short space of time it can have a bad affect on your connection speed and even worse on your profile. the lower the profile the slower your download speed
