NORWALK - Many residents across southwestern Connecticut experienced problems connecting to the internet Monday.

Computer experts say many modems and routers were fried during this weekend's lightning storms.

Thinq Mac in Norwalk was fielding calls from companies that saw their computer equipment zapped by power surges.

Experts recommend getting a surge protector for not just your TV, but your computer, modem and router as well. They say that extra spending now could prevent hefty repair bills in the future.
