    It seems like every 2 years, my wifi router dies. I do buy cheap ones, typically $50-60 linksys, and they work great - while they work.

    My new 11N router just arrived and just curious what the lifespan is for others?

    do you leave them On for 24 hours ? or you turn them off a couple of hours during the day.
