What's the reason for wanting to do this in the first place?
I would found it very annoying, specially if the connection fails from time to time, which with anything wireless can happen at any time.

In my case, my computer will disconnect itself from my router, both on Wi-Fi and on an Ethernet connection, every once in a while (maybe once a week). The only way I can get the connection back is to reboot the computer. Since I use the computer to record OTA TV, it would be nice if the computer would automatically reboot when the connection breaks down when I'm not around to reboot the computer, such as when on a trip or away from the house otherwise.

Task manager will do this, just go to answer #2 on the below link, it has exactly what you want, except....

- Line item 9 should be event ID 10001 (disconnect) instead of 10000 (connect)

- Line item 12 should be the command "shutdown /s/f", or just create a batch file called shut.bat that has one line, the command "shutdown /s /f" (no quotes), and broswe to your file shut.bat when you get to Line item 12

Methinks you mean task scheduler, not task manager.
