Fonera Option of reset.

Component: fon-base-firmware Version: N/A
Severity: unknown
Cc: Hardware: both

Description

Hi, I would like to suggest a option for new firmware or plug in. It will be able to reset Fonera automatically, if the router do not response in X minutes (configure by user) and also the possibility of making a period of X times. This is useful if you access by VPN and the fonera is not answer for some reason.

Thoughts ?

Kind Regards.

What do you mean with "do not response in X minutes" exactly? Since if you can't reach the Fonera, you cannot tell it to reboot.

You could reverse the check and say "reboot the Fonera when it has not had an active internet connection for x minutes", but that can get pretty messy real quick (the Fonera rebooting all the time while you're trying to fix some settings, for example, or when your ISP's connection is down for some reason).

Also, normally rebooting the Fonera should not be needed to recover the internet connection. If there is some situation in which the Fonera's internet connection does not come up correctly after being down for a while, this is a bug and this situation should be investigated and fixed instead. Does this occur for you?

FYI, if the Fonera itself completely locks up or runs out of memory, it is already automatically rebooted.

  • I mean to possibility that the Fonera reboot itself when exists some

problem inside (high cpu,memory, locks up or external reason Example many times ISP has maintenance task then it is necesary reboot. I am thinking... It configured by user.

  • I do not guess, but i think it for some other feature to recover internet

connection remotly.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from infoneeded to closed

If the Fonera is out of memory, or the CPU is locked up, there is already a watchdog that will cause a reboot.

If the ISP has maintanance, the Fonera should be able to recover automatically (it will keep sending DHCP / PPPoE discover packets through its wan interface).

I don't think this problem would be useful, since it will probably also cause users to use it in the wrong way, breaking other things.
