I think that is what I meant. If there is no other connect anywhere, I 
understand it being dead (though, except for accounting, I don't 
understand why there is only one). If its not failing over to use one of 
the other connects, methinks some clever noc fellows could make that 
work temporarily whilest the troublesome routers are addressed betwixt them.

Everyone has been using such clever figurative speech I decided to get a 
little flowery too.
