Thanks. Router will only need to be rebooted if i update firmware or if i get a power cut.
Just limit the amount of reboots / reconnects and you should be fine.
I think i will create a Netgear DDNS or no-ip account & setup this in my Netgear router, so i can point certain apps/services such as vipdnsclub to this domain rather than having to re-register my new IP address everytime.
I set my own DDNS up on our rack server, its a bit crud at what it does, which it every 5 mins it pings a page (with credentials) on the server and if the IP is different it updates the DNS Record and in less than 60 seconds the new IP is live.
Sadly since I moved over to this new router and also where I no longer using Linux Box here to do all the DDNS Calls I have been updating by hand the changes.
I will later on since I have this new router which can run custom scripts when an event is triggered (i.e. a WAN IP change) so I should be able to call my ddns page only when the WAN IP has actually changed and not every 300 seconds (5 mins) like I am doing currently.
I just need to read up on how to do this.
