My internet provider (Spectrum) tells me I need to periodically reset my Router for optimal function.  How do I do that simply and exactly. thx

Re: resetting my router

You could just reboot it. (power off, power on)

But I've got plenty of routers and never needed to "periodically reboot them". 

What actual router do you have? 

what modem/gateway is it connected to? 

Why is spectrum telling you this? Were you having an issue?

Current setup: CAX80->Trendnet TEG-S380->GS716T-> RBK752->pi-hole

First find out why they suggest that. As @plemans says, you shouldn't have to do that.

 

Do you have a problem that needs fixing? ISPs rarely know what they are talking about and often suggest "solutions" that make no sense.
