==Summary==

Various automatic router reboot scenarios can be configured in the <b>Auto Reboot</b> section. 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 is an overview of the Auto Reboot section for {{{name}}} devices.

==Ping Reboot==

The <b>Ping Reboot</b> 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 preconfigured 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==
