Gateway NVG510

I recently had my U-verse installed for Internet and phones. I can't find much info on the NVG510 Gateway. On the back of the unit, I noticed there is a red circle labeled Reset and a button labeled Setup. When would I have to use these?

Also, what happens if power goes out for longer than the battery backup unit can supply backup power? Does the Gateway automatically reset it self and my phones and Internet connection automatically start working again?  

Any info would be appreciated.

I found link to Admin's Gateway manual from answers to the post titled: "Where can I download the UVerse Motorola NVG510 Router manual?" That was helpful, but I'm still wondering how my U-verse Internet and phones would survive an extended power outage. Will the system automatically restart itself when power is restored? Any info would be appreciated.

Unless you have a generator or additional UPS as a power source during an extended outage, your internet and VoIP service will not work till power is restored.

 

Once power is restored the RG should reconnect, your services should function and the battery unit should recharge.

A couple of winters ago, our power was out for 4 days.  Once power was restored, all equipment powered up and all services were in working order.

Re: Gateway NVG510

Is there any kind of up graded  or newer NVG510 available. I have had mine for about 5 years now?
