      Automatically reboot a router via scheduling?

      Hi,
      I was wondering if there's a known method or program which is capable of sending a command or initiating the reboot page on the router at a set time of day, for example 8am (when the noise margin is normally back to its best level)?

      I don't think you can do it with the Sky Netgear router.

      I believe the following code reboots the router, so if you could add that to windows scheduling some way?

      Code:
      http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=ping_test&c4_IPAddr=%26/bin/sh+-c+%27/sbin/reboot%27

      Thanks, I'll give the idea of windows scheduling a go. One other thing, though perhaps it's off topic, I recently noticed a possible solution to those high pings on Sky on this forum, but, I was wondering (as it wasn't responded to in the other thread) what you would suggest is the best time of day to ring Sky BB Support, and if there's a number I should ring other than the 40 40 40 number.

      dunno about best time, but you could always use the online form (see my sig) if you don't require a 2way conversation.
