Turning router off for a long period

Hi all. It says in the manual that the router should not be turned off. If I need to have my electrics turned off for a long time - weeks maybe - will this cause a problem with the router when reconnecting? Will it reconnect automatically? Many thanks if you can clarify this for me.

Hi and welcome,
It won't cause any problem at all, it will reconnect automatically. It's just not recommended to turn the router on & off repeatedly.
