    I've been thinking of putting my RoadRunner Cable modem on an X10 appliance module. And have my HS PC toggle the power when the internet connectivity fails - which is 99.999% of the time the #&^%%^$&$ cable system signal being unusable by the modem. The modem will just sit in a reboot-myself loop trying to resynch. It never, ever does. Based on a year of weekly failures. If you power cycle it, many times, sometime between 5 minutes and many hours later, it will resynch. I gave up showing RoadRunner my measurements and data that indicates its their problem, not a bad coax drop as their repairman contend.

    So, this would be a scripted power cycle on demand.

    Nope, Not so far. I actually have 3 PC's on Appliance modules. Knocking on wood. I have never had any problems with X10 noise. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    rupp - I assume you use an X10 appliance module to switch off/on to reboot. Probably on its own housecode.

    Do you every have the module turn off due to noise?

    Yea, The only time I use it is if my PC were to get it a state that HS and HSP are not responding. I can then call in and reboot my PC.
