Best Answer

If the modem is external, then you either remove the power cable from the wall or flip the switch on the back to the off position. If the modem is internal then you need to click "Start" in windows, then "Run" and type MSCONFIG.EXE and select the modem and "Disable" it using the apropriate button in the window. Windows will then not recognise it on startup.

Should you turn your mondom off every time you shut your computer down?

Depends on the make and model. It is generally a good idea to turn off anything that you are not using because it extends service life. If your modem is a wireless router, than if you turn it off, no one in the neighborhood can use it(provided they had your security info ) but neither can anyone else in your house. Also, some modems sap power and stay warm when the computer is on. If you want to leave it on, nothing will break. However if you want your modem to last as long as possible, save power, and prevent it from being used by someone other than yourself than you should turn it off.


Why won't my internet work when i just hooked up a linksys wireless router?

If the internet connection going to your router is connected to a modem then you mght want to turn it off. The modem will have the MAC for your PC stored in it and when you plug in the router it sees its a different MAC and it wont work. Switch the modem off, take a break and then power it on again. When you leave it off for a while it looses all its data, including the MAC address and the next time its powered on it checks for the MAC and finds your router and then it will work. Hopefully.


Should a modem be turned off when not in use?

(not a correct answer) Of course a modem shouldn't be turned off while not in use it will loose its memory and you would have to reprogram it, so keep it on. Modem can be turned off to save power and to prevent it from over heating if they are not in a well ventilated place when not in use. All good modems are designed for continuous usage. and should be able to remain on for long time (many months and years) as long as there is no software glitch or malfunction causing it to hang. Modems will not loose any memory and will not need any reprogramming when turned back on. All settings are stored in a non-volatile memory which is not erased when device is off. The embedded software is also in a Flash memory. Some service providers recommend that you keep the modem on so that in case there is a software/modem firmware update from their side, it can be updated while modem is on. It can also be updated when you are keeping the modem off and next time when you turn on the modem. Keeping your computer and modem off when not in use is a good idea to save power and protect your system from network attacks and misuse if there is no firewall installed. - Neeraj Sharma
