It would help to know what pieces of equipment you have and how they are connected.

But, assuming you have a Vonage adapter connected to a router connected to a cable/DSL modem then I would unplug the power to all three devices. Wait about 30 seconds. Plug the modem back in and let it 'stabilize'. Then plug in your router and let it go through your boot cycle. Then verify that you have internet connectivity (I assume you have a computer connected to the router). Then plug in the Vonage phone adapter and give it time to establish contact (and possibly download firmware).

And then get a smal UPS and plug your cable modem, router and phone adapter in to it. You will preven this from happening again when you have short power outages.

I bought a APS 600VA and it sits on the shelf next to all of my network gear. You should also remember your cordless phone, if you use one and hope to be able to use the phone during power outages. The Uniden phone that I have has a battery backup in the base station so it does not have to be connected to the UPS but it will still function when the power goes out. This all assumes that the cable co will keep the cable modem running during a power outage. So far they have.

I second mharvey's suggestion. I have all my network gear (and most of my computers, for that matter) on UPSs. In 27 years, I have only once had a power failure of any significant length. But the very short ones, where the lights just flicker, are more common. The UPSs keep everything going and save the wear and tear on the equipment from power surges.

my setup

ups-->outlet strip with a switch ---> wireless router, Vonage router, cable modem.

i had to keep it simple for my wife to reset everything - all she does is turn the switch on the outlet strip off for a few seconds then back on..

i have not had any problems cycling all thee devices at the same time vs wait for the modem to connect then powering on the next device etc.

I pretty much have the same thing and for the same reason. Originally the cable modem and router were in a basement closet along with an 16 port switch. All of the wired network jacks in the house terminate here at the switch. It was nice and clean and out of the way. The problem was that the router (a USR 8054) would just lock up from time to time requireing a reset or power cycle.

I decided to move the router and cable modem upstairs where it was easily accessible. The button on the UPS makes a good reset button. It also helped the wireless coverage to the 3rd floor a bit to have the wireless router on the 2nd floor.

Since I am now using the internet connection for my phone I decided that it had to be more reliable and the USR had to go. I replaced it with a Linksys WRT54GS (V4 still running stock firmware) and it had been rock solid since.
