    Reset Your DSL or Cable router if internet connection is lost (VER II)

    This script pings yahoo.com (I created a recurring event to run every 15 minutes)If it fails to reach the site an X10 recepticle or appliance module is reset (I have my router plugged into it for a dedicated DSL connection)This can be handy if your connection goes down while away from home. The script uses the newer HS.PING command.

    New for Version II
    1 Timeouts can now be setup easily by editing the variable at the begining of the script

    2. X10 Address and Device name are both variables and can be edited at the top of the script

    3. Biggest new feature. Sometimes it's not the router that is the problem. The ISP could be having problems. The script will reset the device three times and then wait for as long as you want and begin testing again. The hold pattern can be determined by changing the Hold delay variable. I recommend 45 minutes to 1 hour which would be 2700 or 3600.

    I have tested this script and fixed any problems before release.

    Feedback of course is welcomed.
