How to Reboot Verizon Fios Router Remotely?

So Here Is A Method Of How To Reboot Verizon Fios Router Remotely?

This is from a Windows 7 64 bit PC and this automatically reboots the fios router every night.  The PC that runs this script needs to be powered on at the time this script runs

1) Enabled Telent Access for Local Access Only (that means while only on my local network).  I did this by

a) login with the browser to with admin id and password

b) Go to Advanced .. Local Administration ….  Allow local telnet access … Using Primary Telnet Port (23)

2) Download Telnet Scripting Tool a.k.a TST10.exe from

3) I unzipped this download and placed the file TST10.exe file from the in this directory

“F:\My Documents-James\Dropbox\Dropbox\reboot-router”

4) I enabled Telnet  Client on the Windows 7 PC I am running this from by turning on the telnet client windows feature۔

Here is how to do that…

5) I created this script and called it “reboot-router.txt”  and placed in the same folder as the tst10.exe program.  Here are the exact contents of this file, except replace “admin” with the administrator  id if you changed it on your router (I did) and place the password for this admin id (fios admin password) on the 5th line of the script                                

WAIT “Username:”

SEND “admin\m”                

WAIT “Password:”

SEND “enteryouradminpassswordhere\m”

WAIT “>”

SEND “system reboot\m”

WAIT “>”

6) Now from a command prompt I would run this command

tst10.exe /r:reboot-router.txt

This would reboot the router.  Now the challenge was to get this program to run automatically with “parameters” via windows scheduler.  I could not get that to work for some reason via the add arguments.  So I had to create a batch file.

7) Create a batch file called “reboot-router.bat” and I placed it in the same folder with the .txt file and .exe file

“F:\My Documents-James\Dropbox\Dropbox\reboot-router”.  Here are the exact contents of this .bat file. 

title reboot router


cd “F:\My Documents-James\Dropbox\Dropbox\reboot-router”


sleep 2

tst10.exe /r:reboot-router.txt /o:output.txt /m


Create a windows task to run every day at 4 am to run this reboot-router.bat file. 

Here Is How I To Do That:

a) Right Click My Computer from desktop….

b) Click Manage (to be at Computer Management)…

c) Click Task Scheduler under System tools

d) Under actions on right side click “Create a basic task”

e) Give it a name such as reboot router…

f) Click Next

g) Keep Daily radio button checked and click Next

h) Select the time you want to have this run and keep other defaults of recur every day “1”  and Start date

i) Select “Start a program”  for “What actions do you want the task to perform”

j) For Program or Script click the browse button and point it to reboot-router.bat

in my case it was “F:\My Documents-James\Dropbox\Dropbox\reboot-router\reboot-router.bat”

k) Click Next

l) Give it name 

9) You are now done!!!!
