Re: Power Down

I wouldn't use a PowerDown plug on your computer and internet equipment. If you want to switch off your PC, do so without powering down your router. Use a switched distribution board where you can selectively cut the mains supply to the PC and each peripheral. Routers are designed to be "always on" and they don't use much power.
