I see you are using a cable modem.That's interesting. 3 weeks ago, much of Melbourne lost power, and I was in the middle of one of these large areas. Cable service stayed up during the entire outage (I was surfing the net the whole time).
I haven't yet got backup power for my node PC, but I intend to replace the batteries in one of my UPSs. The UPS is 700VA, and the PC is an older one, so it should last at least 90 minutes on the batteries (last PC did, with the cable modem running off the UPS as well - now the cable modem is on another backup circuit).
Only one way to find out - laptop, cable modem on emergency power and wait for an outage. ;)
