SNMP not responding?

        What are the possibilites that a router's snmp would just stop working?

I have a 2811 router that was responding fine to my network management software. The router is NOT within my local network. So we had a nasty power outage where my monitoring server is so we were shut down for 24 hours. When power came back up I haven't had a poll from the router since. I have checked my configurations, changed them, reset them, cycled the router, tried different snmp software, nothing! Is it possible that my router is now just dead to SNMP?
