Sample Usage - Internet Connection

I've found this useful for keeping an eye on my internet connection. Since my router goes haywire every now and then, I put it on an Insteon Appliance Linc. Now I have a Network Device that monitors my internet connection and power-cycles the router if it goes offline. The device is just looking at Google's DNS service, which seems reliable enough to count on for status.

Network Device: Internet Connection
Port: 53

OpenDNS is a good one too:

Good work. I had the same problem for years and wanted to do something similar. But instead I changed router to a ubiquiti edge lite and it now runs 24/7 for months with no intervention, power cycling, anything and is just rock solid.
