From BGR:
So many people live with the misconception that their home internet service goes down any time the power goes out in their homes. The truth is that this is rarely the case. Of course, you need to supply power to your modem and your Wi-Fi router in order to connect to the internet, and therein lies the problem. What you need is an APC Back-UPS Pro 1000VA UPS Battery Backup . Just plug your modem and router (and computer and smartphone, when you need to) into the UPS, and plug the UPS into your wall outlet. You’ll have an always-ready battery backup to keep all your gear connected to the internet anytime your power goes out.
