I have little knowledge of how the internet works beyond my computer and modem, so i ask this question so i can get an answer about what can be
expected during a power cut as far as internet access is concerned.
At present in my house, if the electric goes, so does the net. The battery is not working on the laptop so mains power is all i have to keep it going.
I am looking at getting a generator, something that will have a couple of sockets on it for things like the fridge freezer, and maybe the computer if
i need to keep up to date of any news.
However i would like to know if just creating a power socket is enough for the net? I'm talking about a local power cut, say if our village was cut
off, or even my street. Will i still get the signals from outside sufficient to get the net?
Is there anything i need to be aware of? What does net access to my computer depend on?
Thanks for any advice, i know this sounds basic to some of you, but like i say i don't know how it all works.
