Reboot a router through a script, batch or exe

I have a router Huawei EchoLife HG520s, and I need a script, exe or batch file to reboot it automatically, in order to use it with other program to get a new ip automatically each 45 minutes.

Using Telnet I do the following to reboot:

C:\> Telnet 192.168.1.1
Password: *********
HG520s> set reboot


If is possible to get code this in a very simple exe or batch would be perfect, or any other solution is also appreciated.

Thanks

Ok here's the script and method to reboot it.

1) Scheduling:
For scheduling the reboot, download TST10 from winsite.com downloads. It is a tiny freeware Telnet utility with support for scripting. Extract the utility to a folder on your hard drive. e.g. C:\TST. In this folder, create a new text file. This is the file in which we will write the script for TST10, so name it anything you like e.g. reboot.txt. Edit this file in notepad and paste the following. Remember to include the quotes as well and exclude the line which says script.

2) Script :

192.168.1.23
WAIT "Login"
SEND "admin\m" (enter your login ID here)
WAIT "Password"
SEND "admin\m" (enter your password here)
WAIT "->"
SEND "12\m"
WAIT "==>"
SEND "1\m"
WAIT "The system shell is being reset. Please wait..."

192.168.1.1 is the address you use to access the router configuration. 23 is the port to which telnet connects. Replace "login_id" and "password" with the login and password respectively, that you use to access the router configuration page from a browser. Remember, keep the \m after the id and pass.

Now simply create a scheduled task using the inbuilt Windows task scheduler.

Important: Create a task to run tst10.exe with the command line parameter /r:reboot.txt.

Thank you very much cs97jjm3,

It worked after i made some simple changes in the script according to my router,  reading the article in the website of your source.

my script is:

192.168.1.1 23
WAIT "Password"
SEND "notan37facil\m"
WAIT "HG520s>"
SEND "set reboot\m"
WAIT "The system shell is being reset. Please wait..."
