I am looking for a way to configure that my C836 router do a dsl reconnect every day on 4:00 am. How can i setup a solution for this? If possible only a dsl reconnect and not a complete router reboot.

Thanks for every help!

Hello Stefan,

Possible with scripting. You can use script tool(such as RANCID,Expect) installed on some management station. If you don't want complexity of scripting, you can run exec command(reload) using command scheduler which uses Router's inbuilt kron functionality.

Hello yagnesh_tel

When ever there is a chance then i like to configure a command that the router use by it self on a defined time.

If possible then its imho better to place the commands needed to shutdown and open the dsl connection again then total reboot the router. Any idea for any way to set this up?

I visited the link but i am still not sure if that can be done i a simple way.

I used Kron and it looks working fine.

kron occurrence ALICE_RECONNECT at 4:00 recurring



kron policy-list ALICE_RECONNECT

cli clear interface Dialer1


Have a nice day yagnesh_tel :)
