Once everything is set up and working properly you shouldn't have to worry about setting everything up again if the power is cut off. Although when you turn the modem back on, it may take some time for the router to reacquire the connection.

Turning the modem off will not disrupt your settings, but turning the router off will. Just a heads up.
