DSP-W110 does not auto on after power interruption.

(1/3) > >>

Hi All.

I bought a DSP-W110 so that I can power cycle a router that I have.  After configuring it and installing all of the relevant apps I was able to reset the outlet remotely.  Great!  I then pulled the DSP-W110 from the wall, waited 10 seconds and plugged it back in.  The router did not power up, but the led on the DSP-W110 had not gone green, so I waited. Unfortunately it did not restore power even after the led turned green.  I could restore power remotely or by pushing the power button, but it would not power up automatically.

I then created a schedule that was always on and assigned it to the DSP-W110. Still it would not come on after a power interruption.  Is this a bug or limitation?  Has anyone used it in a configuration where auto on was a default?  Please let me know.

Can you test this on a power strip and use the power strip power button to simulate a power outage to see if the DSP doesn't turn on with a standard lamp or something connected to the DSP?

FYI, if your having to power cycle your router, then there maybe other problems. Network routers should not have to be power cycled and can remain on always.

With a power bar and a lamp it behaves the same.  I can remotely turn it back on but it does not power up the lamp when electricity is restored.  Can you confirm that it acually does?  Router is a seperate vlan I use to isolate my kids internet traffic.  The firewall locks out traffic to the router periodically and I like to be able to reset it remotely.  Not great if it does not come up automatically if there is an outage.

I don't have experience with DSP units currently so I can only presume that if after a main power outage and it's restored, the DSP units logically should come to ready and perform it's tasks. I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. Reference this thread. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

I contacted Dlink Canada and apparently the support guys need to try it and let me know.  I have to say that I would think this is basic functionality and that someone out there would have expected or seen the lack of this behavior.  I'll also scrub the web in case anyone else has found a workaround.   

Anyhow, I will certainly let you know how it goes.
