powering off question

Hi do any of Arris wireless gateways have on and off button? In my experience the only way to unplug it is from the wall.  Am I missing something? Also do I ever need to turn off the wireless gateway. Some people say you gotta turn it off every night?

No.

Yes.

Nope.

No. Only if you need to enforce some kind of parental control, or are concerned about possible excessive bandwidth consumption that might put you over the cap if you have one.
