A long disconnect will lead to a full re-negotiation of the connection once the router is reconnected, and sometimes can lead to a slightly faster speed. YMMV.
Actually, that ties in with my experience as well - I also disconnect all my gear from the mains if I go on holiday (typically a week away), and on several occasions when I reconnect and boot up my connection speed has been better.
Must try that again overnight to see if I get an improvement :thumbup:
