Sleep Better by Turning Off Your Wireless Router at Night

If you life in a condo, put an alert up on the public bulletin board or in the monthly newsletter to ask your fellow residents to participate in.

The reasons to turn off wireless in your home are many.  This post is not to discuss them but to deal with a significant part of the issue.

Click here to see the timers that you can use to turn off your router at night.  Generally the newer (the cheaper) routers do not have on off switches.  All you can do is unplug them.  Now that routers are less than $30 you can live with them dying off a bit sooner than if you did not turn them off every night.  They don't last as long when you turn them off and on all the time but you will sleep better.
