Um, routers use almost next to no electricity at all.
By turning them off you'd save, well, practically nothing, really. They're intended to be left on all the time. The carbon footprint is so small as to be unnoticeable.

Believe you me, powering off your router isn't going to save the planet. It's all the other wireless signals around you need to worry about (TV, satellite, mobile telephones, other wireless routers in neighbouring houses, cordless telephones, etc). The major ones (TV, satellite and mobile) are copious times more powerful than your home router.

If you really must, just unplug the router when you're not using it. That's all there is to it.
