You are right to be concerned with your computer being plugged in 24/7. The best way would be layered protection for you connection. First simple turning your computer is enough to block access. If your layered security does not include the followig layers you are just at risk whenever your online.
I cannot access the router itself so can I safely unplug and plug in the ethernet cable from my computer any time I like, particularly when all is switched on?
Is this the only way I can be sure of being offline?

All firewalls have a setting to block everything. This option will stop all traffic to and from the internet. This would equate to unplugging the ethernet.
Thanks for responses.
I have Zone Alarm but I cannot see any option to disconnect - how do I get to that option? Sounds like my salvation!
There is an option in O.E. to work offline but I don't think that really disconnects me form the internet - am I right?
