Can a router have a weekly scheduled reload?

Unanswered Question
May 14th, 2008

Hi, I have many Cisco 877's and 1841's running on DSL lines. They are set up in remote offices as VPN's to our HQ. It seems the lines get slower after a week or 2 of being online. I'm not sure if this is what DSL lines are supposed to do, but if I simply reload the router via the CLI the VPN seems much faster again for a week or 2 again.

Or any other ideas would be mos welcome.

I have this problem too.

Thanks, is this something common? The routers CPU and Memory all remain low. Any commands I could use to see why they do this?

Or just go with the scripting?

Firstly, I would try to track down the problem thats causing these routers to slow down.

Maybe, sessions aren't terminating, memory problems, etc

But if you really need to reboot them then make sure you have IOS that supports SSH and run a perl script and have a cron job that logins to the router, saves the config and reloads it.
