Router Login + Reboot

by nutter130 / January 24, 2009 4:58 AM PST

Ok, i have a few questions, any help would be very appreciated.

Is there a way, and possibly someone point me in the right direction, of doing the following:

Login to router ( with a username + password, (it has a pop up box that asks for them).
Reboot the router, page looks abit like this image:


Is this possible with any sort of code, and can simply be run by double clicking a file on a desktop.

Will be running only on windows (Vista with admin rights - if that helps).

Now, i'm only just starting coding/scripting in my college course, so very very limited knowledge.

Once again any help will me much appreciated.

Why would one need to reboot a router? A good and well configured router set to the settings in our Networking Forum usually runs for years without a reboot.

Tell more as while you could eventually code a reboot code and shortcut maybe you are trying to fix a common issue we chat about all the time in our Networking forum.

Long story short...

Basically, the router I have is the free one from the Sky broadband, and i've had to replace one because it just died, for no reason at all.

The problem I have is if I download a large volume of data (I do alot of BBC iPlayer etc). The router seems to become very sluggish and sometimes come's to a near complete stop, it could be possibly Sky capping my connection but i have the unlimited package so i can't see why they would. Anyway, a reboot from the router's page restores the previous fast connection, so i've always seen it as a router problem.

The reason i want this instead of logging into the router, is security, and simplicity, some family member's aren't allowed on the router page, and other's are slightly computer illiterate and wouldn't have a clue or remember how to do it.

That story didn't stay short, sorry.

But the story is one that we see in our network forums a lot. If you can set it up per our networking forum you find that keeps the leeches off your wifi and keeps the speed up.

Ok thanks, i'll take a look at your networking forums, but the Sky router has a modified firmwire and has very limited settings. If not then i'll be back here looking for more help, if you don't mind.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
