no need of program in your router setting page you will have an option of " restore factory default setting" .
In the browser enter the default gateway ip and enter your router and look for " restore factory default setting".

I beleive you want to try an schedule something to run every 6 hours to reset the ADLS modem?

I would suggest you attempt to figure out why it is hanging which means first we have to figure out what you mean by hang.

First step is to make sure you have the lastest firmware and see what happens.

If you have the latest firmware or it still hangs after upgrading then continue.

Can you  still access the web admin page of the modem when it hangs?  If so, then I assume that the problem is you can't access the Internet.  You should be able to run diagonstitics on the modem and it may tell you something.

If after this it hangs and you have reset to factory defaults as ded9 suggested.  Then what you MAY be able to do is install a packet capture tool (http://www.ethereal.com is the one I use).  Trace the data going to the modem when you reset.  This will give you the flow of data that you need to reset the modem from a program.  Then you can create a script the emulates what is going from your PC to reset the modem.  I know that Perl can do this and I am sure that you may be able to do this with VBScript.

You can't reset a hung device by an application on your PC. The only way that you could reset the device would be to use something that could cut off the power and then restart it.

However as the others have said, you need to identify the source of the problem. I have dozens of these devices in the field as it is the main router I deploy to my clients and the only problems I have had were not down to the device.

You haven't outlined what you mean by the router hanging - does the device become unresponsive, do you loose internet connection, something else?

Simon.

You can use a simple plug into the wall timer to turn off/on every 6 hours.

I would upgrade your ADSL modem to the latest firmware to try and resolve the issue with the device resetting.
