How to create a CRON job to reboot router once a week?

    I appologize if this is very basic, but I have never created a CRON job. I want to create a job that will reboot my router weekly at a specified time and day (for example, every Sunday at 3:00am).

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Ok, I just did some digging and discovered that dd-wrt allows you to schedule a reboot on a given day at a given time (under the keep alive tab).

    I would still be interested in finding some info on writing CRON jobs.

    I don't see why this is difficult. The cron entry is just some numbers to specify when it runs, and a command to run at that/those times. Google is your friend.

    If your firmware doesn't provide a GUI for it like DD-WRT does, you can use nvram rc_startup variable to put in an entry. Assuming firmware has a crond running.
