One router and it takes there entire network off-line... Maybe someone needs

Has anyone heard what the cause of the outage was?

Router crash unplugs 1m Swedish Internet users
Saturday, 21 June 2003

The breakdown of one of Sweden's main Internet routers in Stockholmon
today unplugged more than 1 million of its Internet subscribers.

Reports says in total over 340,000 broadband and 700,000 dial-up customers
across the country were affected by the incident.

The router failure might also have caused disruptions to other Internet
subscribers, who use the services of providers operating on the Telia
