a drop is worse than an outage because of when the power resets back to it's normal level there is bound to a blown fuse..or something bad..but something to keep in mind when you are buying/plugging in router/modems,etc.....
don't plug your modem/router into a power bar, unless you've spent some decent money on it. most power bars offer surge protection, but drop-off protection. as you have other devices plugged into the power bar, the draw they cause will " dirty " the power going to your modem/router and could negatively affect your connection. almost every modem manufacturer tells you to plug your modem directly into a power outlet, and not into a power bar, for this reason.
