Hardware question

Wed Dec 24, 2008 6:36 pm

Merry Christmass !!!
I have had some of my MT routers lock up and need a restart (unplug and replug) to get restarted. No problem if Im in town, a huge pain in the ass if Im out of town and have to drive 8 hours to unplug the device. Is there any device that I can either program to do it like the watchdog (when it looses contact to the internet it restarts the MT router) or call by phone?

We use http://www.digital-loggers.com/lpc.html
We can cycle via a webpage or it also comes with autoping. If the ip does not ping after x minutes it cycles the power on the unit.

We have had real good luck with our units (8 in the field) but have seen some others complain about em.

Thanks, I'll order one and give it a shot. This is what I was looking for.
