can an backup-UPS APC screwup power to a cable modem?
I tried to plug it in the wall and so far it look like it worked, I have no idea why ... i don't understand
I had that setup for years now and somehow now I would have an issue? I have other device connected to the UPS and they behave properly, a quick test (from the ups) show no issue at all.
the only other thing that I can think of is since it was kind of colder outside, I turned off the AC and opened the windows, where the modem is was a little bit warmer than normal but not that much (maybe +2-4c versus ac ON)
I also closed the windows and turned the AC on at the same time that I switched the power to the wall
I will try to plug it in again in the ups and see if the issue show up again, maybe it was overheating? that modem get pretty hot
anyway, this is weird / bizarre ... is it a sign that the modem could be dying?
