how to setup your router to automatically reconnect

At my home I have a DSL router which disconnects whenever it feels like it ;) To reconnect it, I usually have to open up the router’s home page, browse to the page with the connect link, enter the username and password and then submit the form. I know just reading the above text makes me sleepy and it’s such a distraction.

So, I wrote a small script which reconnects the router if it has disconnected. you can use it if you have the same problem ;)
