This article will explain the schedule reboot feature in RV160/RV260/RV34x series routers.
Applicable Devices | Software Version
In RV160/RV260 series router firmware version 1.0.01.05 and RV34x series router firmware version 1.0.03.23, a new option to schedule recurring reboots of the router has been added. It allows you to either schedule a reboot of the entire router or simply reboot the Wireless Radio subsystem of the router on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
This feature provides improved stability for the device and for the Wireless Radios of RV160W, RV260W, and RV340W.
To upgrade your router to the latest firmware, checkout the following articles:
To schedule the reboot:
Login to your router.
Navigate to Administration > Schedule Reboot.
To turn on Schedule Reboot, select Enable.
Select the Reboot Option from the drop-down menu. You can choose to either reboot the Wireless Radios or the entire Router System.
If you are using the RV160W, RV260W, or RV340W, you can configure to reboot either the entire router or just reboot the wireless subsystem. If you are using any of the non-Wireless versions of the new RV routers, you will only see the option to reboot the Router System.
If you notice that the wireless radio is having issues, simply rebooting, and resetting the wireless subsystem during off hours will be faster than a full reboot and might correct any issues you might have.
Under Reboot Every section, configure the schedule for your reboot. The options are:
- Day - If day is selected, set the time of reboot.
- Week – If week is selected, set the day of the week and time of reboot.
- Month – If month is selected, set the month of the year and time of reboot.
It is recommended that you schedule the reboots during off hours. Do not set the device to reboot in the middle of a standard workday.
If you configure a monthly reboot for the 29-31 of every month, keep in mind that February only has 28 days, unless it is a leap year. April, June, September, and November only have 30 days. If you pick one of these dates, the router will not reboot on that month.
It’s as simple as that! Schedule recurring reboots on your RV series router and manage your network devices with ease.
