Code: How to reboot TP-Link Router

TP-Link router may need to be occasionally rebooted as it sometimes hangs in my experience. Here is a script I developed long back to boot such errant server from command line:

wget -qO- --user=admin --password=admin-password


  • You will need wget installed on your system.
  • You may need to change the IP Address and Password.

If you want (let me know) I can give the script to check periodically and reboot TP-Link Router as needed.

  1. Hi Angsuman

    I tried to reboot my TP-Link Archer MR200 with your code. Unfortunately nothing happens when I enter the command (no error message or any other feedback).
    Can you imagine what could be the problem?

    Thanks in advance
