    I will be away from home over Xmas but I will be remotely logging in to my computer at certain times.

    I am worried that my network may go down over xmas, sometimes my pc loses it's network connection and I need to restart the network adapter or do ipconfig / release, renew flush dns

    Does anybody have a script or something they use that will restart my network or even my router if it can't access the internet?

    I have written a simple batch script that I will schedule but I am hoping someone has something to do this already just incase my script doesn't work!

    Have you had any issues before?

    The only problem I can see with this is that if the ISP is down, or if your modem or router may have issues then you're screwed regardless of the script.

    I do get the odd issue when I am downloading big files from my work computer to my home one but moving from wireless to wired solved it for the most part but I just want something to restart the network card if it stops getting data.

    Again, there are other reasons that the connection would be dropped and usually it's not at the network card level. I don't think there is a program out there that would automatically renew that as far as I know. Now you can make a batch file so if you are on the computer and it loses connection, then you can run the batch file.

    If you are worried about redoing a download though, try a download manager like GetRight. It will resumes the download when the internet is resolved.
