If you have a broadband internet connection hooked on to a WiFi router for maximum coverage, you may think you are all set. But, you would also know the feeling of lethargy that sweeps your entire body when you have to constantly get up and switch the WiFi router on & off. Yes, there are times when switching your router off and turning it back on magically jumpstarts your internet connection, when it’s acting up.

WiFi Routers act up for a number of reasons because of which they have to be reset from time to time. Switching a router on & off ensures that the memory, cache and other such scratch spaces are cleared. Sometime certain processes hang, or the router requires software updates, because of which it is recommended that you reset it to restore functionality.     

Now, thanks to a new ResetPlug by MultiNet, you can save yourself the trouble of walking all the way to your WiFi router, when your internet connection decides to play hide & seek with you. How does it work? Well, this smart plug will act as a WiFi client to test your Internet connection. If the Internet fails to work, the ResetPlug will cycle power to the WiFi equipment to reset the Internet connection. The plug also continues to reset the power every 5 minutes until the internet starts working again.

Although smart, the ResetPlug is not cheap. The plug costs $59.99 (Rs. 3,982 approx.) and can be bought from MultiNet’s website.
