I have verizon internet with a router. Even if have a laptop wouldn't I still need to power up the router to access internet? If so, how do people deal with this? Do they have a battery backup of some sort for the router in case of power outage? I am curious even thoughfrom 1983 to date I have never had a significant power outage and maybe only one that lasted an hour. Still, it COULD occur. I have 3 laptops, 2 that are newer but I do not think the router would work if power out.
