Restart Linksys Router by Download Bandwidth Rate

    Hi all,

    I have flashed Linksys WRTSL54GS with Tomato 1.23 ND USB + FTP/Samba Mod by teddy_bear.

    I usually run into a period of bad internet days when the DSL modem starts suffering from total download choke to gradually degrading speed. By doing a hard or cold reset of the DSL modem it clears the problem. Usually my download rates are around 200 ~ 250 KBs.

    I use PPPoE connection type on the router which it connected to the Aztech DSL modem in bridge mode.

    I just wanted to ask that can it be a way in tomato firmware, that based on the incoming download bandwidth rate, I can make the router to reset the PPPoE connection or itself. Something like that if the download rate on the network interface WAN(ppp0) is xxx Kb/s or falls behind a given minimum threshold then the router reboots itself.

    Maybe by doing any Optware packages at NSLU2. I have already installed and successfully running a DLNA server Ushare on the Linksys.

    Thanks for any guidance if possible.
