My modem is an external one and as I have VOIP, I do not turn it off as VOIP needs the modem to work.

The only time I turn it off is when I have a problem and this has been quite often lately. I am having the modem replaced as it is doing odd things, like it has a mind of it's own!

I recently had to change over to the new NBN optic fibre system so the modem stays on all the time. I never used to turn the modem off anyway so it makes no difference to how I use my computer!
I never turn it off

No, there's often someone using the wireless (with phones as well) so we leave it on most of the time.

Ours is on all the time 24 - 7
I want to, but often don't because it's in a hard-to-reach place. :|

I haven't, but am wondering if I should start to, because suddenly, it's dropping in and out unexpectedly.
No. My son in law is a tech and he said to leave it on as updates come in for it. We only turn it off if it needs resetting for some reason.

YES always
Until recently was leaving the modem on always but since I saw the lights flashing vigorously one middle of the night, now turn it off! None was using it so it made me wonder what was going on? Hackers? Dont give them any chance to get into my computer so now the modem is off at bed time.
Mine is on all the time.
