The 5Gstore 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 5Gstore 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 5Gstore 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 5Gstore 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
  • 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

Our DSL modem was freezing periodically. Centurylink is the provider and the modem was bought from them, as was the previous modem, both froze up randomly. Might freeze 4 times in 1 day and then keep running for a couple weeks. I assume the incoming signal quality must have a large variance. This became a problem for our home security system's server. This IP smart switch now power cycles the modem each time it freezes up. Total recovery time from a freeze to back online is about 5 minutes. I consider this a big success. Seems like the modem could include this feature in its own internal design if the designers acknowledge this is a common problem for modem users.

Delivered quickly to Canada. Switch was easy to setup and performed exactly as advertised.

Awesome product. Saves making a special trip to a remote location to reset the router/modem if connection is lost. Great for vacation home or cabin, especially if you have WiFi security cameras!

A very capable product that allows configuration file upload. I use a DHCP server app on a windows machine in order to quickly and easily push config (including static IP) into each switch.

Good product, already have 2 used in different locations

I have only had my Remote Power Switch installed for 2 weeks and it has paid for itself already. It has saved about 500km of driving and time as well as the convenience of being able to reboot router and switch after hours. I haven't had it long enough to give the full 5 stars, but definitely recommend this switch.

Useful product. Great customer service and speedy delivery.

The internet for my database server has been dropping the connection about twice a week and I have to drive 1/2 hour to my office and power-cycle the router. This device has made my life easier. I have never been this happy about a product before. Thank you so much 5Gstore, you are the best!

This thing is great.

Awesome product. Verizon's service is crappy out where I live and my internet drops a lot. In the past I have had to wait to restart my router this does it automatically for me now so absolutely love this product. I would recommend this to anyone.
