If the router died, it will be difficult for it to send any notifications. A station (amangement station) polling the router regularly might be able to detect that. Now, can a station inform you by SMS for instance, maybe.
You can use Network Instruments, Link Analyst, which polls the router at different intervals that is configurable. When your router shuts down or if any of the ports are defective, Link Analyst will alert you by pager or cell phone text messenging.
It works well for us and you ar notified within minutes.
The majority of cell phones now have a email address associated with it. Use some sort of out of band monitoring tool to monitor your interfaces. If using a SNMP MIB browser, you can set it to monitor a specific interface. If the int reaches a certain threshold, or does not respond, you can start a batch file. This batch file could be something real simple that just emails your cell phone. This entire set up should be fairly easy to set up and I bet you can find some free tools to do this for you.
