What device do I need?

I have a 1 amp electrical router, that I want to startup about 1 minute after I start the main power. Is there a device that I can get, to plug into a power strip, that will delay power on? I've read about "Time Delay Relay".

Tx for any comments.

Sure is, here is one that should work for you.

ICM Relay, Time Delay - G2825864 at Zoro

It isn't "plug and play" but a simple enclosure with a cord and receptacle would do just fine.

Do you mean a computer router. Best to not turn off comp routers. You could wait ten minuets for it to connect.

I agree with Ray, best not to power down a computer router. I leave mine on as well as the modem 24/7.
