What specifically is the trigger? Is it no wifi, or no WAN ip ? Or I'm guessing since it's open source this could be set per use case. Seems like you'd need a chain of these to be effective. Most people I know don't use a router/modem 2 in 1, so minimally you'd need 2.. and somehow be able to stagger the power cycle so that the modem cycles first and the router cycles a min or so after (I've had routers that dont' automatically pick up the WAN ip in the event that it's power cycled before the router).
