Electrical timer for network router

I did explain in an earlier post about how useful these electric timers are. In August, I faced an issue with one of my clients. They had a system that needed to be rebooted periodically or that system would “hang”. The devices were an AV switcher and a network router. That is the problem with these network routers…especially the consumer grade ones that cost less than $100. They will hang and need to be re-started periodically. So what I proposed was to go to the supermarket, buy a couple of these (they only cost about $10 each) and install them in the client’s premises. After I did that, I did not receive anymore calls. I set the timer to turn off the equipment at 0200 hrs and come on at 0600 hrs. So if you are looking for a solution, which is relatively inexpensive, this will help
