£The information in this page is updated in accordance with firmware version RUT2XX_R_00.01.14.3.

Summary

Various automatic router reboot scenarios can be configured in the Auto Reboot page. Automatic reboots can be used as a prophylactic or precautionary measure that ensures the device will self-correct some unexpected issues, especially related to connection downtime.

This chapter of the user manual provides an overview of the Auto Reboot page for RUT230 devices.

Ping Reboot

The Ping Reboot function periodically sends Ping commands to a specified IP address and wait for received responses. If no response is received, the device will send Ping commands a defined number of times at a defined frequency. If no response is received after the defined number of unsuccessful retries, the device will commit the specified action (reboot, by default).

The Ping Reboot section contains one pre-configured rule by default. The figure below is an example of that rule and the table below provides information on the fields that make up that rule:

Periodic Reboot

Periodic Reboot is a function that reboots the router at a specified time interval regardless of other circumstances. It can be used as prophylactic measure, for example, to reboot the router once at the end of every week.

The figure below is an example of the Periodic Reboot configuration page and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that page:

Rutxxx webui services auto reboot periodic reboot setup v1.png

Days Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday | Saturday | Sunday; Default: none The day or multiple days on which the router will reboot
Hour integer [0..23]; Default: 23 The hour of the day on which the router will reboot
Minute integer [0..59]; Default: 0 The minute of the hour on which the router will reboot

Wget Reboot

Wget is a computer program that retrieves content from web servers. The Wget Reboot function works in a very similar manner to Ping Reboot. While Ping Reboot sends ping requests to determine whether the conditions for the specified action have been met, Wget Reboot attempts to retrieve the contents of a web server.

The figure below is an example of the Wget Reboot configuration page and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that page:

Interval between requests 5 mins | 15 mins | 30 mins | 1 hour | 2 hours; Default: 5 mins Interval at which Wget requests will be sent to the specified host or IP address
Wget timeout (sec) integer [1..9999]; Default: 2 Maximum response time (in seconds). If no response is received after the amount of time specified in this field, the Wget request is considered to have failed
Retry count integer [1..9999]; Default: 5 Indicates how many additional times the device will try retrieving the web server's content with Wget if the initial attempt fails
Host to ping host | ip; Default: www.google.com Host or IP address to send Wget requests to
