The IP Switch requires a Windows computer for firmware upgrades or reloads (all other management of the IP Switch can be performed with any OS, including Mac). A firmware upgrade/reset should not be necessary for normal operation, but non-Windows users should be aware that firmware upgrades will not be possible on non-Windows machines.
Do you have access to a Windows computer? - details

All IP Switches shipping from 3Gstore have the latest firmware, which supports Google Talk, already installed!

The 3Gstore IP Power Switch is a simple product that automatically power-cycles any device when internet connectivity is lost. All you have to do is connect the included ethernet cable from the 3Gstore IP Switch to your router, and then connect the power cables of the devices that you want to be power-cycled when internet connectivity is lost, like your DSL modem and router. Once you have everything connected, press the "UIS" button, and everything will be up and running. The 3Gstore IP Switch automatically pings five different targets (which you can specify), and when it is unable to ping the specified targets, it will power-cycle any devices that are connected to its power source.

Uses for the 3Gstore IP Switch:

  • Home users who have to manually power-cycle their router to re-gain internet connectivity 
  • IT Professionals who need to automatically or remotely reset devices
  • Preventing your connection from timing out or going dormant
  • Create an automatic power schedule (ex: turn on at 9am & turn off at 5pm)

If you are a current user of the IP Switch, you can download the latest version of the user manual here: IP Switch User Manual (PDF)

NOTE: For Firmware upgrades or reloads, the IP Switch requires a Windows computer. All other management of the IP Switch can be performed with any OS, including Mac.

Tech Support and 24/7 Support Portal Access Included: Our expert tech support is included for free with your purchase.

The primary feature of the unit is very simple: it monitors an internet connection and power-cycles the connected devices if the internet connection goes down. This simple feature alone can be very useful if your mobile broadband or cable/DSL connection drops, and all you need to do is reset the router to re-gain connectivity - this will automatically reset the router for you, without anyone having to visit the location and manually cycle power. While the unit's main feature is very simple and may be the only feature most customers will use, the unit also includes some more advanced features:

  • Web Interface: Allows you to monitor status, view logs, and change advanced settings & configurations via web browser
  • Power Scheduling: Up to 20 schedules may be set to turn power on/off to specific ports at specified times
  • Timed Power-Cycling: Automatically power cycle power every X minutes (1-1440)
  • Logs: To keep track of when the unit had to reset power, etc
  • Dynamic DNS Support & Remote Admin: Allows customers to log in via the web to access controls, view logs, and remotely turn on/off power to specific ports or reset power
  • GTalk Messenger Support: Sends you notifications and allows you to issue commands to check the status, as well as turn on/off power or power-cycle certain ports via GTalk
  • Advanced Network Configuration: Allows you to set up to obtain a static IP address and use different DNS servers and change HTTP web admin interface port
  • Save/Restore Configuration: Allows you to save and easily restore your configuration. Good for customers who are purchasing multiple units, as they can create a custom configuration file and apply it to all of their units instead of manually configuring each unit

Easy to setup, easy to program, great support and a perfect price point. Highly suggest for any shop looking to support remote reboot of equipment where client has difficulty doing so.

The Power Switch does what I needed plus some more. The pinger feature was tremendously useful in a private network use case. After some interaction with tech support - which was indeed very helpful and quick - the latest firmware was sourced and implemented. That was the only downside: firmware was different between the 2 units I had ordered, and so was the web interface. Again, tech support helped fix the issue efficiently.

I've been using the two-outlet switch for a little over a year. It has a 100% success rate in cycling the router power on one outlet and cycling the DVR power on the other. Both lock up about once a month, and I haven't had to manually intervene yet. Great product!

Thought I had a bum cable modem, replaced that and the internet service continued to drop off (thank you Time Warner) added the IP switch and it boots right back up without heading to the internet closet...great time saver, worth the money!

The people at 3G are awesome. I had trouble setting up the device for an unusual application. A quick call to customer support and they had the device up and running, doing what I needed it to do, in no time at all. I will definitely buy from them again.

The item does as the 3DStore said it would do. You can't ask for more than that. I do wish that some "get started", simplified, instructions were included, with an offer to send via download more details if needed.

Does what it says - I am not controlling it remotely but did test it by unplugging the ethernet cord, and within 5 seconds it rebooted the power to the devices (router and modem) plugged into it. Can't ask for more as that's what I was looking for. Easy setup.

We have a vacation home with a Vera controller and IP camera. The internet provider uses dynamic IP assignment and our router routinely would freeze up for some reason. The provider wanted to charge extra to remotely manage the modem and also to provide a static IP. So we ditched theirs and got a Netgear router which works great except as soon as we did this, we noted that it would freeze occasionally (suspect something the provider is doing). Anyway, with this switch, the problem is solved and we never lose remote connectivity. It works perfectly and is easy to setup. We debated over the two versus one plug but felt for the extra money you get the ability to delay restart sequence and since we had several devices connected to the router, the extra flexibility to phase restarting was worth the few extra bucks.

I had two problems: an unreliable modem and unreliable DSL service in a rural environment so I only need to ping and reboot. The unit works fine and has kept me connected so that I can monitor the remote location with my IP camera. Love it!

The product functions exactly as advertised. It was simple to set-up and the user interface provides easy configuration using terminology that a non technical user can easily understand. This product has now ensured the reliability and availability of my home network, especially when accessing devices remotely. I no longer have to worry about ADSL drop - outs and having to physically return home to re-set the router. I highly recommend this product and the price is excellent.

Questions & Answers

I ONLY want to use this device to remotely control power on/off. I do NOT want to use the auto-reboot on Internet loss feature. Can I disable that feature and use it ONLY for remote power control?
I have a firewall for my VPN that needs to be reset frequently and remotely. Can this device sense that the firewall is down and reset it, or do I have to reset it manually?
Living in a remote forested area we get lots of power outages during storms. Our backup generator restores full house power in about 15 seconds. How does the switch react to a full house power outage and restore?
Can this unit be configured to only restart from a Gtalk or web command, with the IP detection turned off?
I am using a wireless keyboard for my PC: can I use your device to remotely power on my PC?
In a future update - would it be possible to let the user set the number of powercycles before giving up? Or trying twice - then waiting for an hour before trying again. Thank you for a fine product.
I would like to install this device at 11 locations. Can I view all 11 devices from one webpage or can it only report on once device at a time?
Our internet connection could be down for several hours. How does the device behave during an extended outage? Will I have to force it to power cycle again at some point if it gives up?
is there support for REST API or JSON control? I would love to control this with my home automation app called SmartThings
What happens when the internet provider's system is down? Does the Switch cycle on/off?
Can this be set to automatically power cycle every hour?
Does this product come with a warranty, if so can you supply the details?
Can you remotely access the switch using an iPad/iPhone?
Does it support TELNET and SSH protocol?
What is the USB port used for?
Is this product UL listed?
