Hello,

I have a small business network. 1 server and three workstation. I have a dsl modem, switch and a router. The workstations each are on a battery backup. The modem, switch and router are not. After lossing power at my location I have lost my connects to the internet after powering back up. But I am able to connect to each workstation and server.

I am back on line and have a tech come out to reconnect my system. But I would like to know if there is any thing that I can due to prevent this from happening. Should I put the model,switch and router on a battery back-up?

Is there an order that my system should be powered off and on? Would this help prevent me from losing my connection?

Thank you.

it's always a good idea to have as much of your stuff on a ups as possible. this may have dropped your settings in the router and or modem. though to my knowledge the routers and such have no ability to go through a shutdown process.

i suggest trying to make a backup of the configuration files on the router if you can.

If nothing else, I would at least recommend a surge-protector. Be careful which ones you buy though. As with anything electronic, you get what you pay for.
