With the cost of energy remaining high, we are all looking for simple ways to reduce our energy consumption. In fact, we’ve talked a lot about this at Leak. Of course, one of the easiest things to do is simply unplug appliances like televisions and consoles from the mains. This causes energy to stop being consumed. However this can also lead to many errors. Interestingly, some people are making a mistake in the Wi-Fi router that may be affecting the speed of the Internet.
This error on your Wi-Fi router affects your Internet speed!
With the eagerness to save, since you can save a lot especially at the end of the year, you end up disconnecting what you can and what you shouldn’t. However, one thing you really don’t want to turn off is your Wi-Fi router. This is because pressing the power button or pulling the plug out of the socket can wreak havoc on your Internet speed.
While it’s tempting to keep your router from flickering and draining power when you go to bed, there’s a lot that can happen overnight to ensure this device continues to function in optimal condition.
Some Internet Service Providers (ISP) release updates when most people aren’t using the web. This makes perfect sense. So if these software fixes are not implemented, routers can be exposed to bugs and malware that steals data. This in addition to having a slower Internet.
According to the operators, “Turning your router off overnight can affect automatic software updates and optimizations which, in turn, can affect the overall performance, speed and stability of your broadband.”
This is a reason to leave things turned on, but this is not the only problem users face.
When you constantly disconnect and reconnect the router, it seems that the connection has become problematic. This can lead to companies imposing speed restrictions on broadband, as they prefer to keep it on rather than offline. If this happens, you will see that downloads become much slower.
So if you want to keep your router secure and free from slowdowns, it’s better to leave it on.
