Similarly, you can attach a cheap / spare router (would cost 400 - 900 Rs)
to AC mains and check reach-ability of this router
Pretty nifty ideas. My office LAN has two servers, a switch and a Wifi box.
The former three are on UPS but the last isn't, so one would think that I
could use it for this purpose. But no, I have trained my staff to power off
the Wifi box when leaving for the day. I need to evaluate whether to
"untrain" them or plan something else, but along these lines (we are
getting a printer next week which I don't plan to put on UPS, perhaps it
would be a good candidate).
Thanks for all the suggestions, folks.
