RouterStats currently 2.7eBETA as of today.

Have been messing about with this the last couple of days (as seen in another post) and must say it works very well.
I have set up the alarms to trigger when my downstream margin drops below 5dB (which for me is the point of no return if i am actually wanting to use the internet) - if this continues for 60 seconds it will reboot my router.
Reading the help files I even see a link back to

Having this running is good because if the connection reaches a point where it is about to drop the router reboots and things are fine again, very helpful when my wife is using the internet.

I was wondering tho is there a similar way of actioning these reboots at a certain trigger level that I could actually run off my router (DG834GT). Some sort of script/app I could load up in the router so that even when my PC is off (yes I do sometimes switch it off) something is monitoring my connection?

I really do need to find some time to have a play with this sometime,
I suppose I havent bothered too much because I have MRTG monitoring mine.
Please do not PM me with queries for broadband help as I may not be able to respond.

I've been running RouterStats for a few days now just to get a picture of what is happening in detail, just for interest, there are no problems.
A sample of stats from RouterStats log earlier this evening: -
Mon 04 Dec 2006  21:30:47,, Rx-Noise= 8, Tx-Noise= 24, Rx-Sync= 8128, Tx-Sync= 448
Mon 04 Dec 2006  21:31:07,, Rx-Noise= 6, Tx-Noise= 24, Rx-Sync= 8128, Tx-Sync= 448
Mon 04 Dec 2006  21:31:27,, Rx-Noise= -2, Tx-Noise= 24, Rx-Sync= 8128, Tx-Sync= 448
Mon 04 Dec 2006  21:31:47,, Rx-Noise= 6, Tx-Noise= 24, Rx-Sync= 8128, Tx-Sync= 448
Mon 04 Dec 2006  21:32:07,, Rx-Noise= 8, Tx-Noise= 24, Rx-Sync= 8128, Tx-Sync= 448

There was another occasion in this evening when the margin went to zero (Mondays are always bad) but the Netgear DG834v2 held on no worries.
I've not seen such a bad margin for some time, it was before I re-wired the extension with CAT5. Just trying to remember if it was when we put the kettle on!
And this was a test a few mins ago with a margin at 6db from
