Monitor Comcast Cable Modem
Hey all, I've been using pfSense for 2+ years now and I recommend it to everyone. Keep up the good work!
I wrote a shell script to reboot my cable modem if a series of pings fail. I'll lose my internet connection once in a blue moon and if I reset the modem, I'm back up in a minute. But if I'm out of town, my whole system will be shutdown until I return. This script seems to solve the problem.
I'd love to add it to pfSense if you guys are interested. It could be modified to work with any cable modem that has a web interface. I've got open-source development experience with the www.yetanotherforum.net project, so I'd probably be able to implement it in a reasonable amount of time.
You can build a package and submit it for inclusion on the repository.
