I'm looking for some GENERAL advice for the 800 series router - I have the 877, running 12.4(24)T1.
This morning I had no internet access. There was nothing obviously wrong with the router (though I'm a newbie). I logged in and issued a reload and everything has been fine since. What I'm looking for is some general advice, particularly:
- If this happens again, what commands should I run on the router to check the status. I looked at show int and they all looked fine.
- Is there a simple command I can run to drop the connection and re-establish it, since reload seems a bit of a sledgehammer.
- More importantly, is there anything I can configure on the router so that it will try to maintain the internet connection, and re-establish it if it seems to have gone.
Looking at mrtg, my connection has been down since about 00:33 (it's now 07:51), and it just required a reload to get it going. That would be a nuisance if I was away for a few days....
My log shows this:

Do ftp to ftp.cisco.com with your CCO credentials, then cd to /cisco/access/800.
Only the 3.x FWs are good for your router.
