Scheduling Automatic Modem and Router Power Cycling Using a NetReset NR-1000US

Standard

Back at the house the cable modem and router usually operate just fine but every now and then something hangs up and unfortunately it’s not always practical to go by to reset the gear. And asking a friend to do it for me, even when they’re eager to do it, just seems unfair.

So I searched for a device on Amazon.com, as usual, and sure enough someone has a product that is intended for exactly this need. The NetReset NR100US, which cost about $45 $60 $73, can be set to automatically reset the power to both outlets on the device using a set delay between them. It will turn off one outlet for a minute, turn it back on, and then a minute later do the same for the next.

This may be a useful device in any home, not just remote locations, vacation homes, etc to ensure that a modem and router are rebooted frequently without needing to do it manually. I’ve only had the device in place for about a week but so far I haven’t noticed any issues.

Updated 06/13/2018: There isn’t much to add about this device. It still works and it appears to work very well.
