Should a router be powered on 24/7?

I have had this router for two years and recently have had connection problems.
The solution seems to be to leave on between use.

Could the Modem be at fault?

>is it an ADSL router?<

Yes.
Stays connected when left on between use.
Also, from boot, often finds "local" servers, but not national. (Eurosport or Ebay)
On now by entering Netgear site and opening "reboot modem"

My Cable router Linksys wrt54g has only been turned off about 3 or 4 times in the nearly 5yrs that I've had it.

My adsl Voyager 2110 router (wireless and ethernet) is turned off every night and switched on again in morning before booting the pc up.

My computer automatically connects to the Internet (ISP Talktalk) when I switch computer on.


What do you mean by:
"Also, from boot, often finds "local" servers, but not national. (Eurosport or Ebay) " ????

Is turned On when the PC is turned on and Off when it is turned off. This may happen several times a day.

My connection speed has never suffered and is, except at Peak Periods, within 5% of my Contracted Speed. Downloads and Uploads the both.

the only reason you should be having connection problems is if the router is overheating with happens to me
