Wireless Access Points - automated reboot
Hi there, i have a load of Wireless Access Points Mostly netgear and 3com, i'm after creating a script or method for automated reboot. as these units crash if not rebooted regularly, and i've tried upgrading the firmwares.

I don't have experience with Netgear or 3com access points, but the first thing I would look into would be SNMP or scripting a bounce of their connected switchports. Your switches may even have a power save mode which will turn off designated ports at defined times to reduce power consumption. This will in effect bounce he WAPs as well.

I would suggest powering all of your APs via a POE switch. A lot of POE switches have the ability to disable and enable power to a specified port on a schedule. It makes it much easier to remotely manage your APs by having them all powered from a single POE switch.
You can still power your APs via POE even if they don't accept POE input by using POE splitters such as these.
That company makes some great, extremely powerful POE switches as well.
