I have used high-end remote power controllers in the past from Pulizzi
and Eaton, but now I want one that is cheap, simple and easily
controllable by Linux. We have a Comcast cable modem at work, and it
needs the occasional reboot to stay happy (ah, fond memories of Windows
95). My particular modem (SMC8014) doesn't appear to have a wget'able
reboot URL, and I want to cold-reboot it anyway.
What have you used for remote power control on the cheap (under $100)?
I've heard of X10 being used for this sort of thing, but I don't know
how controllable it would be from, e.g., a shell script.
