Sorry if this is a naive question but having had a router trashed by a surge during a recent storm, is it ok to unplug everything during a two week holiday period please? So just leave the phone on but remove the DSL connection to the modem/router and power that off? Or would having no remote kit connected disrupt anything back at the exchange?
It's unlikely we will be hit again but don't want to risk it. Alternatively, can we surge protect the incoming DSL signal and also the modem/router power supply (although I thought surges couldn't get past step-down power supplies?)
up the down escalator..........
