How can I reboot my Alcatel SpeedTouch Pro by using a shortcut or a script?
Sometimes you'll need to reboot your modem in order to make is synchronize with your network carrier, or just to save changes you've made to its' configuration.
The easiest way I've found it to use a simple Telnet script. The problem is that Windows Telnet client does not allow to enter scripted commands, so I had to look elsewhere.
Looking for the right UC performance management? It's not complicated. The Network Instruments® UC platform delivers voice and video clarity, fast troubleshooting, and raises performance – for ½ the price of the competition. Benefits include:
- Behavioral baselines
- High-level and detailed call summaries
- Integrated visibility into multi-vendor environments
- Active polling with robust UC metrics
To my surprise I came up with a small program made by Albert Yale a long time ago, called Telnet Scripting Tool - TST (191 kb).
This program will let you create a text file with commands, and enter them with your Telnet program.
10.0.0.138 23 WAIT "User :" SEND "\m" WAIT "\m" SEND "system\m" WAIT "\m" SEND "reboot\m" WAIT "\m"
I then created a shortcut to the TST program:
(Change the folder location to match your own).
You can also create a shortcut for this operation in the Quick Launch area for quicker reboots.
