At sites where I have a Davicom remote control I use it to monitor several websites for deciding when to reset a relay in series with the DC cable to the router. I have been looking to decide the best product to purchase for translator sites that have lower priced remote controls.

My research found this as the best potential solution. I am about to order one @ $99:

There are cheaper one-outlet boxes but they usually are often controlled by the device "reporting home" to a manufacturer's server via wifi so that a cellphone app can control it. Those have security issues and are more easily hacked.

Again, I am going on what I researched, not from operating experience. I am about to buy my first one now.

I hope this is helpful.

Hi Guys:

I thought I read here that someone recommended a device or software that would ping an outside address, and if nothing came back, that device or software would reboot the router-modem.
