I've got a Buffalo WLI-TX4-G54HP. I love it, because it is a good way to allow myself to connect to the Internet. The only problem is that sometimes it disconnects and the easiest way to restore it is to reboot it.
It does so less when we connect it to the WRT300N router as opposed to the NETGEAR WGR614. However, a every once in a while it still does so.
I'm looking for a way to automate this procedure somehow. The desired target would be using a script for Linux. I can directly tell it via http:// to reboot with this URL: http://126.96.36.199/advance/apply.cgi?action=Reboot
This can be done using a browser, such as firefox or konqueror, or that one netscape like browser.
I'd like to automate the thing using a shell script. It should connect, using a command line browser of some sort, or a direct way to run the URL somehow. I'm not sure how to do this.
Second, even linking there requires a user name and password. I'll not give it away, however, I'd like it to enter them somehow by itself, as if it was me. How do I do this?
