we recently replaced a Linksys router due to flakey operation, and the loss of recognizing 100mbps cable connections, among other things.
Interestingly, this became more visible after a recent power outage.
We have all our network equipment on a UPS (sized for 30 min up time) and then some surge protector strips just to basically get more things connected...
Router, AP, 10/100 switch, DSL modem, small 10/100 switch between modem & router, NAS disk server, desktop computer, monitor, charger for laptop & a cordless phone base unit
I seem to recall reading about NOT putting surge power strips behind a UPS protected outlet - for some reason ??
Any thoughts or comments - Don't want more flakey components on the next long power outage.
