RAX20 POWER STAYS OFF AFTER POWER OUTAGE

I just bought an RAX20 router that is connected to a UPS. When the power goes out and the UPS dies, Then when the power is restored, the power does not come back on the router. Why? How can I make it return to the power on state after a power outage?

   Are you saying that the RAX20 no longer starts properly when power is
applied to it?  Is that when it's connected to some known-good simple
outlet, or only when it's connected to your (unspecified) "a UPS", or
what?

I have the exact same issue. Forced to manually turn the router power on after an outage. This is a poor design for smart homes when the user is away from the house.

It will turn on but you must have someone physically at the location to press the power button. In the past, my routers would automatically boot when the power was restored. This makes it tough to manage a smart home when you’re out of town and the power goes out.
