Scheduled router rebooter

For years our home + office internet connection was plagued by slowdowns and brief outages that could only be cured by rebooting the router (even after upgrading it). A year ago I installed a small timer device that reboots the router and modem every night at 4am. Problem solved; we no longer have internal internet issues. I would have preferred to have weekly reboots, but I have been unable to find a cheap timer that can easily execute this schedule (ON all the time except OFF 4 minutes once a week). For now, this Tech Restarter works. It is made for just this one purpose, to reboot daily. You program what time. It offers two plugs, both activated in parallel.
