software to reconnect broadband during the night

I'm looking to find any software that can automatically reconnect the broadband connection after it is disconnected by the ISP.

My friend does some work for the stock exchange and needs an continuous broadband connection, day and night. He is using a BT broadband line (cable) which is notorious for disconnecting due to worn out equipment and not much chance of it ever being renewed. No probelm if its during the day, a quick manual reconnection restores his selling programme and no harm done, However, if it goes during the night and stocks are selling overseas, it goes completely bananas and mucks up the whole thing. He does have an old NTL line that could be reconnected as a back-up but fears the same probelms with this.

Does anyone know of any software or other solutions?

Any ideas welcome, thanks, Ise.

Many routers automatically reconnect after the line has dropped. Wouldn't one of those do the trick?

if you go into properties (of the connection) and then options there is a redial if line dropped option

EDIT: you would also have to uncheck "prompt for username..." so that it dials automatically
