Network monitoring and restarting router
Does anyone know how we can call this from a script?
Or an alternative way of doing this...
We've discovered we do have telnet access to the router and can restart it from there.

You could try something like servers alive
This will monitor a site on the internet for you - either ping / page contents / ssl cert valid.
If an error occurs you can get it call a batch file - this could open the telnet command for you.

Our Zabbix does this for us. What we're struggling with is getting the router restarted programatically.

The other alternative is plugging the router into a networked pdu (or equivalent) and telling Zabbix to power off the correct socket, wait 10 seconds, then power it on again. I can think of various Heath Robinson way of doing this.
