    I run an older WRT54G for my home network, and occasionally loose my connection. I have Linux machine watching my external IP, and it detects the change to "" just fine. My question is how do I "Push" the "Connect" button to reconnect from my shell script?

    Not the problem. My internal network is working just fine. The WAN connection on the router is what I want to reconnect via script, as opposed to having to visit the page and push the button...

    how are you connected to the net? what setup do you have on the WAN interface of the WRT54G?

    I have had different setups. I had a DSL setup back in the day. I am currently on a wireless internet service. I just upgraded my service from PPPOE to a manually entered reachable static connection so I can VPN in from outside and host a drupal site. I haven't had to reconnect since then, although I have had to reboot the router a couple of times...sometimes I go to look at the settings and the router's web interface doesn't come up, even though all computers connected continue to function. Rebooting fixes it. It could just be that it is old.
