In the news recently, a malware allegedly created by Russian hackers can easily infect routers and any computers connected to them. The FBI warning is to reboot or do a factory reset to any router ASAP, which should clear the malware.

I have my modem and router connected to a digitally timed outlet - which does a one minute reboot every day at about 4:30am. Keeps it humming along nicely, highly recommended.

Good idea! My router is on a switched wall outlet. When at the computer, room light is on and so is the router. Leave the room, switched off! Can be a few dollars in electric bill savings over being on 24/7. WIFI router and CATV modem are different.. need to be on 24/7. Takes more than 10 minutes to reset.
