Monitor Internet Connection?

Post by shaggy79 » Sun Jan 31, 2016 10:12 pm

Hi all,
Is there a way to 'monitor' my internet connection through EG?....
For some reason I regularly have to reboot my router :evil:
I either just unplug & plug it back in, or if I am not near my router I do it through the 192.168.0.1 interface.
I am with Virgin media and it happens a lot (way too often :twisted: ).
So I need someway of monitoring my connection so if it looses connection it will just reboot my router.
I have already set up EG to reboot it but I have to manually have to execute it in EG.

Thanks
Paul.

The Ping plugin?

Just ping www.microsoft.com and when not reachable, use the event to restart your router
