Power failure and Linksys PSUS4


Last night a transformer exploded in our neighborhood, so the power went out at our house.  After about an hour our UPS ran out of power so the remainder of the network equipment turned off.


This morning I tried to print something, and I noticed that the Linksys PSUS4 was not accepting print jobs.  It looks like it wasn't using the ip address that I had previously allocated to it, and it wasn't getting an ip address from the dhcp server.




In order to get this to work, I had to press and hold the reset button.  This caused the PSUS4 to get an ip address from dhcp again.  After doing this, I was able to run through the steps that I did originally.


I am surprised that these settings weren't saved.  I would have assumed that they would have been saved in nvram.
