Just hooked up to an adsl service (Bellsouth). In the past, with our dialup service, I would turn off the power to computers and pull the modem connection (we live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida - "Lightning Capital of the World"). I'm now concerned whether powering down will interfer with my dsl modem and my router operation (had some issues with both on connection - seem to be cured now). During the summer this is almost a daily occurence.
