I have got my Desktop Pc and my Laptop both connected by wireless to the internet.
I can disconnect from the internet if I so desire.
My question is,when I do a Ghost or Acronis full image Backup should I disconnect from the Internet before making an image of my hard drive?

Probably best to disconnect and disable your AV otherwise the AV will try to scan every file as you backup and slow down the whole process

I am finding now that when I switch off from the internet for backups etc.
That my Belkin Wireless USB as great difficulty to reconnect telling me that I am too far from the BT wall pickup point which is why I originally had a modem but with buying a laptop i had to go go wireless with the Belkin USB adaptor.
I finally have to reset the wireless pickup from Belkin to Windows and usually it then connects. Is this a problem with the belkin G USB Adaptor or is it normal setup.
