    i have wrt54gl with latest thibor hyperWRT release. I need the router to close the connection to the I-net and redial immediateley. This should happen every night at 3 or 4 a.m.
    My provider interdicts to be always on.
    Is it possible to control it through a startup script?
    Any help wanted.
    Thank you,
    sorry for my english, i am from germany

    thank you grcore! but as I said I am a Newbie. I don't know how to set a cronjob on the WRT54GL :frown:

    Is a reboot the only possibility?
    Isn't it possible to set a cronjob, that closes the connection and redials afterwards?

    I would be really happy, if someone could help me with some instructions on how to create a cronjob...:redface:
    thanks so far!
