    i am using shibbys build tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-110-AIO-64K.trx on Asus RT N66u.

    Furthermore all traffic is routed through an openvpn client connection.
    My vpn provider is privateinternetaccess.

    Every few days it so happens that i have no internet connection on the wireless and lan devices connected to the router.

    A quick restart of the vpn connection in the tomato ui is fixing it.
    After restart of the vpn connection all is working flawless again...

    Is there a small script or any other way to periodically check the routers connectivity and restart the vpn connection automatically if needed?

    I am sharing the wireless with some people - when i am not at home nobody is able to access the tomato ui to do a restart - and i do not want to share the router login...

    It seems there is some problem in resolving germany.privateinternetaccess.com -

    when i manually press "stop" openvpn and then "start" openvpn in the ui - all is fine - ?
