There is a reboot script that can be installed on the modem to help mitigate the issue by automatically rebooting when a drop is detected. Follow the instructions below to install.

It’s normal for nothing to change visibly. wait for 5-10 seconds to make sure the command processes, then clear the top box by selecting the command you just pasted then hold backspace/delete until empty.

 

 

Last step.

Make sure everything worked by copy-pasting this final command:

 

crontab -l

 

You should see the long command you copy-pasted before now shown in the console box below.
