Internet Connection

Dear All,
I am not sure if I have a problem, could someone advise me. I am running Windows XP Home Addition.
If I right click the icons of the two monitors on the task bar, then click status, it tells me that I have been connected to the internet for so many days and so many hours, even though the pc is switched off. I am using a Netgear DG834GT wireless router. I am on a home network with one other desktop pc and a laptop.

The router is still connected even if the computer is off.

as grey goo says thats perfectly normal,you can unplug the router when not in use if you like :o)

...just remember that, if you do switch off your router, it may take a few minutes to reconnect when you switch it back on again. This is normal too.
