Dear All

From time to time, my modem/router sticks and I have to switch it off
and then on again. Can that be done only with software, without using
the modem physical switcher?

Thanks in advance,


It depends on how it "sticks". If it has a WEB/based interface, and
that works when the router 'sticks", then you may be able to do a
software reset. If it is locking up, and not responding to the
outside world, then you are limited to the switch or some other
method of turning off the power, and turning it back on.

Have you checked for a firmware upgrade for the modem/router that
fixes the "sticking" problem?


If the router/modem is still responding to its web interface, take a look at the HTML source to find out what command is executed when you hit the reset button on the web page. For instance, I have a D-Link DI-624 and issuing the following will reset it:

wget -O /dev/null --http-user=admin --http-password=admin-password
