After a recent power outage I realized that while all our main computers are laptops with battery power, the WiFi and modem are not. Cable service to the area continued working fine, but without power to my modem I couldn't get online.
All the guides and ratings I've seen for UPSs are for powering a PC. A modem and WiFi base consume significantly less power, does that mean that a UPS rated at 20 minutes for a computer would power the network equipment much longer?
I would like to find out how to select a good UPS for my network hardware. How will I know which one fits my needs?
