comment I want to automate rebooting most or all of the major routers remotely, will provide software to everyone for free
@fixer1234 If I can't get access to the menu system for at least some or most of the routers, I'm going to need to buy each type of router one by one in order to learn how to communicate with them via telnet so that I can then automate this telnet communication. I know there are other protocols one can use to talk to routers, but I haven't even had the opportunity to investigate them yet, nor do I know if they could be used to reboot or reconnect the router.

@fixer1234 Ok, then in this case, pointing that out would be fine, instead of AngelaS accusing me of malicious intent. Really, I'd be happy to learn, one by one, the menu system for each type of router so that I can interact with them via software (telnet) which I'll write. I already use UPnP but it's terribly limited. I just need a way to automate rebooting or reconnecting commands with any router using telnet, once i can do this, I can figure out how to speak to the rest of the routers. There must be a site which shows the telnet accessible menu system for at least some of the routers.

comment Is it possible to limit the total time a user can be logged in on Windows XP Pro?
an you tell me more about the router option? I would love to be able to disconnect the routers internet connection and reconnect it remotely in an automated fashion (in that, i would write the software for it). Perhaps a way to use a telnet control and send automated commands via telnet so that it either reboots, disconnects and/or reconnects the router. Any ideas on this option? I would make the program freely available and it would also be useful when router stops working and you can (via my software) reboot or reconnect it with the press of one button.

comment Connect/Disconnect broadband connection from Telnet in a Thomson TG585?
I am totally begging you here... how did you learn how to do this? I have a Thompson router as well and I get the same menu system, but I have to troll through the menu's and sub-menu's to do a reboot, which means I can't automate it using software. However, with your command, I can (using a telnet control), and I can make a freeware application so that anyone can restart or reconnect their router at the click of one button (instead of walking upstairs to the router several times a day). I can give you a copy too, and it'll be free. Please please, give me all the leads you have :).

Every single time I post on SO or SU I have to put up with people like this who are either rampant post closers or deliberately misinterpret my clearly worded question as something other than what it is. I'm beginning to think there is something wrong with us programmers & computer admins. Were we tortured at high school for being smarter than the bullies? Are we now taking out our aggression on one another as a psychological response in order to feel better about ourselves? This sort of thing happens far too often for it to be coincidental now, and this behavior is especially rampant on SE.

Why couldn't you understood my question? I want to provide a button so that people can have multiple ways to reboot/shutdown their routers (very useful when network errors occur). Of course, I'll be testing it on my own router before making my software freely available to help people and improve their standard of living. Why? Because I (like many others) don't want to walk to the other side of the house or up/down 3 floors several times a day just to recycle/reboot their routers when they stop working. And @fixer1234 how on earth could both you and AngelaS interpret my intentions as malicious?

@davidpostill My question is certainly not off topic, where am I supposed to post a question like this if not here? Do you get a kick out of making this website less user friendly? Please don't be another [CasperOne] who is a rampant post closer and closes posts without even reading or understanding the question, mainly because he can't know everything about programming. By doing what you did, you are just removing value from the site, you are not adding value. Being a good person means everyone wins, I am willing to write this software that so many can use for free, why harm the community?

@Tetsujin I really need a remote solution, i know it's possible because there is a windows gadget plugin that does it, but it doesn't work for all routers, asks for password & username which most people don't know, and I know how to make it better if I have the information requested.

comment Is it possible to command a common router without using the web interface?
@MDeSchaepmeester Actually, just use telnet, is telnet enabled by default on your router? If not, i'm sure you can turn it on. If you want, i can login to your router via telnet to figure out the command that is necessary to run, then i can hook you up with the automation software that will login using telnet and run that command for you whenever you want, either on a schedule or whenever you double click an icon on your desktop. let me know.

comment How can I find out when I last executed a particular .bat file?
@grawity actually, i'm sure they must keep it somewhere. reason being, in control panel when you go to "programs & features" you have the option to sort the programs by how often they are used (which is run/executed) since this will not be based on last accessed time. then, in their description, they quote usage frequency with terms such as "rarely", "sometimes", "often", "regularly" etc (this was in vista), now in Win7, if you right click on the columns & select "more..." of installed program listings control, you'll see a "Last Used On" option! Any ideas? I am in need of this too.

comment How to reboot WAG54G2 from Web Management
@Robert do you have the reboot URL's for other routers as well? I'm trying to put together a list to write software ppl can use to reboot remotely or without having to go downstairs to their routers, UPnP/HNAP etc are all hit and miss/useless... so if you have more reboot URL's for other versions or routers, we will finally be able to solve this problem once and for all! Would love your help. Contact me.
