This is a common problem with Malaysians. Having their modem (and sometimes even more) fried by lightning during rain and thunderstorms, thanks to our tropical location! More so during the monsoon season now which rains almost everyday! So much so some companies like Aztech (and now Belkin) are known to replace your modems or routers should they get struck by lightning, since many new users are unaware they should remove their phone line from their modem or router during thunderstorms - as phones work just fine! However, it does help if you live in a location with tall structures around you, as the lightning will go for those instead of you!
