    Nice to see the unit up in Germany!

    As of this feature, let me chat a bit with our engineer and get back to you.   Is the problem to do a pre-disconnect before the real disconnect happens?   Would you mind share the configuration used the AVM router? (so we know how this feature is configured?)

    The configuration in the web gui from avm is only a checkbox with a dropdown list, e.g. 1-2am, 2-3am, ... (sorry screen is in german)

    No firewalla can reconnect at any time and should not wait for disconnect issued by the provider. After a reconnect the 24hours are restartet, even when you reconnect after e.g. 4 hours. But  think the fritzbox is reconnecting a few minutes before the 24 hour timeframe, I don't know. But myaybe a stupid cronjob can do the job as well.

    As a workaround I inserted following crontab:

    3 4 * * * root killall -HUP pppd

     

    It seems to work, it's executed during night, interface is going down and after few seconds up again with a new ip.

    Amazing work @Alex!  I will ask our team to create a set of script ideas for people to use and include yours as the first one.

    Here's another approach. A script that can be called by cron anytime to reboot Firewalla. 

    Edit: here's the link I meant to include.

    Here's another unit up in germany, just a red one.

    i'm also having Fritzbox and VDSL50 means 50 MBit down and sth around 12 up. VDSL doesn't have the forced "cut" every 24 hours. Maybe because of needed SIP phone which will be interrupted by that forced "cut", like mentioned.
