If you’re having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device’s WebUI, you should turn on “Advanced WebUI” mode. You can do that by clicking the “Basic” button under “Mode”, which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.
The Ping Reboot function periodically sends ICMP or Wget requests to a specified IP address or host and waits for a response. If no response is received, the device will attempt the same action a defined number of times at a defined frequency. If there is still no response, the device will execute the specified action (reboot, by default).
The Ping Reboot section contains one preconfigured rule by default:
To enable the default rule, use the off/on slider next to it. You can add more rules with the ‘Add’ button or delete them using the “Delete” button. If you wish to customize a rule, click the button that looks like a pencil next to it. Refer to the figure and table below for information Ping Reboot configuration.
