Is it OK to leave a router switched on 24/7? My wired router, a Pluscom linked to 2 PC's. seems to work better if on all the time, but it does have an on/off switch. Gets warm as well, I had wondered if any risk from leving it on all the time. Anyone any thoughts please?

Better left on, mines on 24/7 as is most people I know.

Just moved to Sky Broadband (after 14 months without any access at all to the web!!)They suggest turn off router when not in use, in their literature.
