I believe I would need an ethernet cable to hook it up to the router? Or am I thinking of something else entirely...
Yes, you would need an ethernet (CAT5 or cable with RJ-45 connector) cable. As for keeping things plugged in and on 24/7/365, it is not necessary, unless you run some kind of server, like a Plex server, web server, etc.
Linux can help in this too, which I why I suggested in my last post (live images do not need to be installed on a hard drive to run). After all, I have encountered a situations that cannot be solved through Windows (e.g. reformatting a hard drive that was formatted with HFS+).
The key to solve anything is to isolate problems after all.
