For best of/from Broadband

What is the best way to use Broadband. I switch off my system when I am not using it. I happen to be new at all this stuff and would be grateful for any positive advice.

if you have a router, leave it connected permanently. As for your computer, do as you please. I often leave my e-mail program running and set it to check for new mail every five mins so mail just "drops in" as it is sent to me! I have also placed the Ananova TV guide on my desktop together with a CNN clickbar, so I have the latest news scrolling accross the screen all the time! You can't do this stuff with dial-up!

hi simon 6102
I leave my connection on all the time that
the pc is operational.....just like your phone
..its connected all the time...after all that is
part of what you are paying for.
