You will need to power on the router, however to prevent the environment from being contaminated by the radioactive green lights you will need to purchase some duct tape from any hardware store. The tape then needs carefully placing over the lights, being careful not to get cat hairs stuck to the tape and not to cover any cooling vents.
For additional effectiveness you will need to soak the duct tape overnight in custard. This should allow the tape to be effective for at least 4 moon cycles. Please email back if you have any further queries.
It’s a pity that that wasn’t the response I got from Zen internet when I asked:
I have just turned my router off to save power (the little thing had flashing lights on it so must have been bad for the environment) but I now can’t get onto the internet!
Can you please let me know what I can do?
