Anyone have experience with a doohickey which allows you to remotely
reboot (via SNMP) a power outlet?

I have a flaky device (Comcast cable modem) which I want to reboot
programmatically, by cycling power to it.  In fact, ideally, I want
the doohickey itself to ping the target device, and if the target
device fails to respond (after ~10 minutes), to cycle power

I've found this by googling:

Anyone have real world experience with one of these things and can say
"yup, it works' or "nope, it doesn't"?
