X10 Reconnect Service
What is X10Reconnect Service?
Why is there need of such program?
X10Reconnect appeared from a personal need.
During last years I tried two configurations of connecting to Internet:
- Verizon DSL + DSL modem + Siemens Speedstream WiFi router
- Comcast Cable + Netgear cable modem + Netgear WiFi router
As you can see, the configurations are quite different. However, they had one thing in common: every once in a while, the connection was dropped, and nothing I did via software could bring it back. The only thing that reestablished my connection was to power down the cable/dsl modem, and sometimes even the WiFi router.
I needed a way to reestablish via software the Internet connection and bring my web server back online, and this is how X10Reconnect was born.
There may be other cheaper alternatives than X10 devices, but as I have a couple of these in my home I thought I could use them.
Current version is 1.1, (Released 04/04/2005)
