Do you unplug your router when your away on vacation?

If you were to be way for over a week would you unplug your router?

Yes, just in case there was a bad electrical storm while I was away. It's probably not necessary, but better safe than sorry.

I generally don't; but I think I will start. When I got home after two weeks, my router was fried. Remember to unplug it from the telephone line or cable also.

I do have a surge protector. It will not protect against lightning strikes.

I unplug mine whenever I'm not using it, whether I'm away or not.

I don't see the point of leaving it plugged-in personally.

If I un-plugged the router when I was away I would not be able to remote into my system.

I'm never that much on vacation

Haven't had a vacation in over 3 years as I am spending all my time trying to teach this animal to stop saying NO to everything.

Off on vacation
As per August 15 I will be off on vacation for 4 weeks in the southwest of France. I will only take my 7" tablet for emergencies and the wife's calls to her mother in the US (free) but will not follow up on the forum postings.
