I'm looking for a solution to my want, anyone with advice/suggestions it's appreciated.
I would like to be able to call home, have a device pickup the call in concert with my answering machine, and I'd like to be able to tell the new box to turn off & then a momment later back on (or just powercycle) a router in my home office
The difficulty I'm seeing (after reading a lot of historical posts in this group) is that the device I want to powercycle (my router actually) sits behind a very nice UPS, which conditions the power (and presumably would eat a standard house wiring x-10 signal)
For the momment, my entire desire is to powercycle that one low-juice sucking device, with something that sits between the UPS and the Router-- and works.. in the future, I can forsee the possibility where I'd like to also power-cycle a computer behind the same UPS- so something expandable would be nice also..
anyone have reccomendations for this situation? the phoneline in, and router device, are about 100ft & two walls apart... and running a cable is not (cough wife) practical.
