I did this regularly a few years ago and used to feel like I was 'being punished' by the Interent svc provider for disabling access to my computer, because trying to re-connect the next day became a constant pain. I have the same linksys router, a comcast modem, and hi-speed broadband through their LAN. Question: who or what is at fault for lousy internet connections, slow connections, or no connections: (everybody's tech dept. blames everybody else)
The router? 10 year olds, maybe obsolete?
The modem? came with the service plan - can connect three devices on a sharedconnection.
The ISP: I read they not only even control and completely regulate bandwidth usage, but they also ration it!! (true?)
So can I safely 'pull the plug' each night for security or not?
