Why does my router not re-connect to the internet after a power failure ?

I have a Askey SAX1V1K router. When the power goes out and then comes back the router never reconnects to the internet. The red light just keeps flashing until I unplug and replug the power plug. Then about 30 sec later the internet connects. Is there a setting or is this just a hardware issue ?

    Hi @jackm2020

    Welcome to our community. It's hard to say for sure what's causing the router to not reconnect after the power failure. Is the router connected to a power strip or just plugged directly into the wall outlet? Is this happening after a brief power outage or one that's a few hours long?
