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)

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

Although I only rated it four stars, I do so for authenticity. The product works perfectly now, with a lot of help from a very courteous and customer oriented technical assistance. It took several emails to get everything up and working, but now it works EXACTLY like I need. I recommend this product to anyone who needs a WORKING solution to losing internet and needing to reboot the router when that happens.

This is a very useful remote power switch. My staff really likes it and has requested I purchase several more. Works great and very easy to configure. 5 Stars and 6 Thumbs up!

I've used with good success a number of these 1- and 2-outlet remote switches over the past few years. This latest version does not appear to have the issue with not resetting properly after several Internet losses over a short period of time (~60 mins) and I'm hoping it is due to current firmware that can be updated to earlier hardware versions.

This is my second switch in two years. The first one just failed despite a tremendous amount of post warranty tech support from 3GS. For the protection this switch affords my network, I'll buy one every two years if that is it's life expectancy.. I give the switch four stars on longevity but customer support five stars, which is second to none. I certainly recommend the product and 3GS.

Fantastic product for spotty Internet Cable Modems. I have a remote local that frequently goes down because of a spotty modem, or pushes by TWC on the modem and a hard reset is needed, this solved a huge problem of not being on site. Easy web based setup and configuration if you want to schedule the resets or works great out of the box no setup needed. ! Ought to be standard equipment from the ISP.

No need for the internet monitoring feature in my application, I just needed a dual remote power switch for two Tablos at a remote antenna tower site so I didn't have to trudge through rain and snow to reboot them when one would occasionally lock up. Used the utility to set a static IP on my subnet, then the GUI to name the outlets the same as the Tablos, then gave the GUI an easy name for the wife to remember if I'm not around. Perfect.

Works great. Had to do a firmware update but it was easy.

I now have four of these and they are extremely reliable and very useful in managing my network after a power outage
