  1. Alright I got it working. NTP gets an accurate time. Though I had to edit /etc/config/system and change it to my time zone. As referenced at openwrt wiki --------------------------------------------------------------------------- config system option timezone 'EST5EDT,M3.2.0,M11.1.0' option hostname 'turtle' config timeserver 'ntp' list server '0.openwrt.pool.ntp.org' list server '1.openwrt.pool.ntp.org' list server '2.openwrt.pool.ntp.org' list server '3.openwrt.pool.ntp.org' option enabled '1' option enable_server '0' config led 'led_wan' option name 'WAN' option sysfs 'turtle:yellow:system' option trigger 'netdev' option dev 'eth1' option mode 'link tx rx' -------------------------------------------------------------- Then I also took a page from their wiki noting how to perform automatic reboots. So I edited my crontab to this: (will reboot automatically at 4:30AM) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 30 4 * * * sleep 70 && touch /etc/banner && reboot ------------------------------------------------------------------------ And this worked perfectly! Hope this helps someone else too. I just can't be totally trusting of the turtle's reliability in the case of some lock up, or what not. So this will give me a chance to have it reboot nightly and re-connect if possible. Thanks all. lasermole
  2. well from what I can tell the turtle uses NTPD and gets a accurate time after booting up. At this point I just want to know what correct command to input into cron to trigger a reboot? even if it happens at the wrong time, it'd be something. lasermole
  3. Hi all, Just got a LT last week, and liking it so far. Though my plan for it requires it be placed in a remote location I can't get into without some effort. That said I want to use cron to reboot the LT on a time schedule, either a specific time say 1AM EST, or after a certain amount of uptime. I've had no luck with the entries I've made into cron so far. ex. 0 1 * * * root reboot > /dev/null 2>&1 0 1 * * * /sbin/reboot If anybody can help me find a working cron reboot setup I'd be so very grateful! Thanks! lasermole.
