Does ONT reboot after a power failure?


I live in an apartment which has a utility room(AKA computer room). My computer & FIOS TV are in the computer room.


I want to reorganize the computer room & clear up the rat's nest of cables.


I have a surge protector & a UPS. Right now, the ONT is plugged into the battery backup of the UPS.


If I'm watching TV in the computer room & there's a power failure, there's no big deal. But if I'm on my computer, I want the UPS to supply power long enough for me to properly shut down my computer.


I assume that the ONT will reboot if there's a power failure, right? I know that the router will reboot after a power failure.


Should the router & ONT be plugged into the battery backup of the UPS or does it really make no difference whether the ONT & the router are plugged into the UPS or the surge protector?
