Will I lose my router settings if I turn off my power strip?

I want to start turning off my power strip when away or at work to save a little energy. Will I lose my wireless router settings? It took me a while to get it setup correctly, I don't want to have to repeat the process.

My strip does have a always on plug, but I would have to unplug the router temporarily to switch it over.

Thanks.

Hi Stumped 1

I hope no minds me replying to your question.
No you should not lose you wireless router settings.
Just to make sure, you may want to access your router, via 192.168.x.x or whatever the gateway address is to your device, just to verify your settings and before you exit, make certain you have those options saved.
One other fail safe method is to write-down the settings just in case.
But, if the settings are saved upon exit, you should be able to power-down, unplug your device (wireless router) and reconnect to it after powering your devices back on.

My router allows me to save the settings as a file on my PC
