Do I Leave My Wireless Router Switched On?

When I am not using my PC do I leave the router on, off or does it not matter either way?

Mine stays on 24/7.

Is this the general concensus?

I think the general consensus is that most routers are left on 24/7, the only time mine actually gets switched off is if I'm diagnosing a fault with my net connection (rare) and a router reboot is needed.

I should add that because it's a wireless setup you should have your security setup on the router. You don't want anyone getting a free surf of your back ;-)

Thanks all, 24/7 it is.
