try to keep the speakers and modem at a distance and also on different power socket/phase if you can!

the speakers may be powerful and draw a lot of power. wen u switch on the lights(tube-light) are there sounds(disturbances) coming from speakers?

My thoughts exactly, i'm beginning to suspect your ups isn't sensitive enough to detect the power fluctuation or it is in need of a service, you can ask your UPS vendor to adjust sensitivity.I bet it does not switch to the battery when you flick a switch.Your modem like most electronic devices is pretty sensitive to this.
