Most of us use non-professional routers at home connected to our High-Speed Internet.
After a while, depending on the traffic, the router seems to become slower, and sometimes even stuck.
When we are around, there is a quick fix: just turn the router off for 10 seconds and turn it on again.
But what if we are not around? What if the router stops when we are on the middle of a business trip?
Tired of having this problem with all types of routers that I could try, I decided to build an unexpensive solution which I've been using since 2007 without any problem. I call it Off-On Kit.
