In 2007 Zen provided me with a router called SpeedTouch 585. I have now changed to TalkTalk and they have provided a router called HG 523a. [The first cost about £60, the second was free.]
Should I bother to change to the new router - is it likely to make things any faster or have any other advantage?
Also, I was advised to turn off the SpeedTouch overnight, but TalkTalk say I should leave the HG permanently on. [The Speedtouch does get quite warm by the end of the day.]
Many thanks for any advice.
Your choice but the new router way give you higher speed and I prefer to leave always on as it tends to stabilise your line settings. It could take up to 10 minutes after you switch the router on for it to settle.
