Router Reliability

I have a D link 655 Router which will not re-connect to my cable modem after it has lost service and come back on line. It is a real problem because it is located at a remote location where no one is available to cycle it off and on. It always come back fine when re-cycled. I am surprised they don't have any type of auto re-boot.
Maybe some do?
I would like to purchase a high speed reliable router but after having gone through many different ones not sure where to turn. Any sugestions would be appreciated,

Thanks

  1. I think this behaviour is because the cable modem and router need to handshake before they work together so one or (in some cases) both need to be rebooted.

    I agree, but there must be a solution for unattended router operation at remote locations. Maybe a wireless router that reboots itself every so often?

  3. My Netgear DG834GT Wireless ADSL unit can be rebooted remotely -- but of course this is a self-contained modem/router.

    Whether a simple cable router being rebooted like that would do the trick is worth investigating -- try some manufacturer's user forums (Netgear's forum is particularly good).
