New Router
 
Made the switch from an old and slow ADSL modem running pptp to a router quite
painlessly. Had to have ddclient use a web interface to get the IP number
since this is now hidden inside the router. Works fine.

I had the network disconnect. Using pptp, I had a cron job to reconnect if
need be which ran periodically. How do I do this with the router short of
manually running netcardconfig?

(The router has not setup interface I have found. It should try to stay
connected but it might well have. netcardconfig reconnected the computer to
the router!)

I'm not sure what you're asking, since an Ethernet connection to a
router is "permanently on". If you're having trouble with the
interface, you can take it down and bring it back up again with
something like

ifdown eth0
ifup eth0
