  1. I don’t think this is at all possible to do, but curious if anyone else would have some insight on this. Is there some sort of device that can connect wall or a surge suppressor power with that of a Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) and then you can plug your cable modem and router into that device? OK, I know this sounds dumb, so let me explain why I want to do this. I was working at home over the Internet when the power flickered, enough for me to lose my Internet connection since both my router and modem were plugged into a surge suppressor. The power did this a couple of times that day. Eventually I plugged the router and modem into the UPS to prevent my Internet from dropping. The problem now is that I always turn off my UPS when I’m not using my computer, which of course disconnects the Internet since it is plugged into the UPS that I shut down. This prevents me from using my other devices that need the Internet as well. I don’t like leaving the UPS on constantly, because I might not use the computer for several days. So if there is some device that would plug into the surge suppressor and plug into the UPS, then if I could plug both my router and modem into this device, it would prevent me from losing Internet connection. If I am on my computer and the power cuts out, the power will automatically pull from the UPS. If I shut the UPS off the device would automatically pull its power from the surge suppressor. I don’t think there is anything out there like this, but if there is I was curious if someone could point me to the right direction. Thanks for any suggestions.
