Simple question - does anyone have recommendations for a powerline comms (ethernet bridge) device that will automatically check its own connection and if it is lost (not due to unplugging the device but transients or whatever making the ethernet connection drop) to re-establish it? Or is there a device that "just works" and doesn't need power cycling to re-establish a data connection?


Thanks, John

Have had tplink and dlink. Both required power cycling 2 or 3 times a year. Not the end of the world for a domestic situation. DSL router is no more reliable.

I've used half a dozen models and never seen one with a 'watchdog' reboot feature.
