Automate an overnight Superhub reboot?

What methods may exist to set a weekly schedule for rebooting the Superhub overnight?

The damned thing is terrible, it has no idea how to handle multiple devices on the network, and gets cluttered and confused so easily.

A reboot does the trick a little bit, temporarily, and it's inconvenient to do so during the day.

A timer plug or “smart plug” will work. 

Or upgrade to either a newer hub from Virgin or get your own router and run the current hub in modem mode.

The goal is for the thing to stay on when they get the firmware right asking for a schedule for rebooting is just accept defeat.

Use the hub in modem mode will be more stable less to go wrong and get your own router with 1Gb ports.

Re: Automate an overnight Superhub reboot?

You’re right. I have admitted defeat.

This is my second Superhub 3. I have had all of them.

I have a 10x drop-off from the router to my home office. But range is just the main one of several issues  

Yesterday, I plugged in a new Eero but got no better range - albeit, I haven’t yet turned Superhub in to a modem only.

Anyway, the point was about automating the reboot.

You can’t automate the reboot. 

How many Eero’s did you get?

They work better in multiples as a mesh system

"How many Eero’s did you get?"

One. Yep, I understood the mesh networking aspect. Even so, I had expected some decent coverage from a single. But no.
