Vigor routers offer time schedule function, which Network Administrator can use it to automatically restart the router on schedule. This article shows an example of schedule a reboot every work day

1. Go to Applications >> Schedule and click on an available index.

2. Edit the schedule profile as follow:

  1. Check Enable Schedule Setup.
  2. Set the Start Date and Start Time.
  3. Set the Duration Time to 0:0 (required), otherwise reboot function won't work.
  4. If this profile is for rebooting, we can ignore the Action and Idle Timeout and leave them as default.
  5. In this example, we want the reboot to be a routine. Check the Weekdays from Monday to Friday
