Tips to help you survive any blackouts: how to keep the Internet working during blackouts

Blackouts are back in the reality of Ukrainians. But the question arises, how to work and stay constantly in touch.

“Telegraf” with reference to Vikna will tell you how to connect to Wi-Fi even when there is no electricity in the house. In this case, you can do without expensive devices.

GPON technology

With the help of Gigabit Passive Optical Network technology, you can use home Internet. You only need to connect your router and optical terminal to the power bank. So your network can work without electricity for up to 12 hours.

All thanks to the fact that the providers support the power supply of the systems with generators. Therefore, access to Wi-Fi will be available even when the lights are turned off in your house. All that remains is to connect correctly.

How to use the Internet without electricity

First, make sure that your apartment has an optical fiber and an optical terminal. Usually, each subscriber receives all this from the provider when connecting to the Internet.

To connect to the network, connect your optical terminal and router with an additional power supply unit. It can be a power bank or a small generator.

You can use the received device in three scenarios:

  • to use only home Internet;
  • to simultaneously use Wi-Fi and charge a laptop;
  • to simultaneously use Wi-Fi and charge a stationary computer.< /li>

Providers note that in the first scenario it is desirable not to exceed six hours of use, in the second — four o'clock, and at three — two hours.

So, the usage time will depend on which scenario you choose, because the more devices, the more power they need. Also, the usage instructions are slightly different for each scenario.

Only Wi-Fi is needed

To start using your router without light, connect the power bank to the optical terminal and the Wi-Fi router as standard.< /p>

This will require:

  • two 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm USB DC cables;
  • two power banks: one for the router, the other for the optical terminal. If you have wires with a voltage boost, then everything will work with one power bank.

How much time will you get?

How much time you can use depends on the power of the portable battery WiFi. For example, if you connect a USB DC 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm 5V 90 cm cable to a 5200 mAh uninterruptible power supply, the system will work for two to four hours.

In order for the working time to be longer, up to six hours, you can use a similar kit with a more powerful power bank from 20,000 mAh or take a 400 VA uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

All other scenarios differ only in the capacities of the uninterruptible power supply devices, because additional charging of devices requires more energy.

Requires Wi-Fi and laptop power

To simultaneously charge the device and use the network for two to four hours, you can use an 800 VA power supply. For six hours of operation, you will need a UPS of 850 VA. A device of such capacities has three or more sockets to which all devices can be connected.

Internet is required to work on a stationary computer

To work for about two hours in this scenario, you can use a 1500 VA uninterruptible power supply device.

If you want everything to work for about four hours, then you need to buy an uninterruptible power supply with a higher capacity, from 3000 VA.

The price of connecting to home Wi-Fi Fi when there is no light will only depend on how much power the uninterruptible power supply you buy.
