I own a router (tp link w8960n) that I can "control" via telnet and busybox. Is it possible to create and run a script on the router like a permanent process(more like a cronojob) if the router has busybox? is it like an OS? I couldn't a find a way since I have a limited set of commands I can use.

Thank you

a startup script? – XXL Jan 19 '12 at 16:09
yes that would do it, something that I could keep running. – Sandro Antonucci Jan 19 '12 at 16:10

Try upgrading you default firmware to OpenWrt firmware.
It provides more functions then the default routers firmware.
