I've been looking for a device like below that can power cycle a router or other network equipment on detection of internet outages, ping failure etc. Any other suggestions or locally sourced product recommendations?

Thanks

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

My worry would be the device thinking it was offline and going in to a loop of reboots.

 

 

 

Otherwise, really easy to achieve with a relay and an arduino if you felt adventurous?

Depending on your usage case, this might be an option to consider?  https://www.amazon.com/IP-Power-Network-Controller-Reboot/dp/B002L6W8N8 

 

How about a Mikrotik with a script that pings 8.8.8.8 or similar every hour, and if it doea not get a response, it reboots itself.  https://www.google.com/search?q=mikrotik+reboot+on+failed+ping

Ubiquiti have a similar device, but currently in early access, probably US only for some time :( :

I use these, and they work great.

 

https://tyconsystems.com/products/tycon-solar/all/item/129-tpdin-monitor-web2

 

I mainly use it for the monitoring and fan control in cabinets interfaced with LibreNMS, libre just walks the device and pulls all the information from it.

 

It can do a ping watchdog on any of the 4 outputs or you could cycle the outputs at any given time or on a voltage or a current.

 

There are 2 N/C outputs and 2 N/O, but if you crack it open there is a jumper on the 2 N/O outputs to allow you to change them to N/C.

 

Go wifi stock them https://gowifi.co.nz/power/tpdin-monitor-web2.html

 

Have a look at the features and here is a fully operational demo of the web interface, http://tpdin-demo.dyndns.org:8006/

Just use netwatch and restart the dropped interface (i.e. PPPoE).

Sometimes you are forced to by the ISP if you want to get the grandparent phoneline service.
