It fried my router me thinks.. dumb thunderstorms.. also, we found out... our power scrubber got hit as well,but only 20% efficiency was lost, a simple repair job will fix it.

I don't need to unplug my stuff, I just should have had the router plugged into my UPS and through the power cleanser... my mistake.. oh well, new router time.

Little Orphan: Oh, Uncle Homer, you are so learned.
Homer: Learnd, [insert name], Learnd
