    Thank you in advance for all your help.

    I know this may be a pretty simple question but none-the-less I am a
    novice. The company I work for had recently been experiencing
    intermittent connectivity problems with remote sites via T1
    connections. The links had been operating normally and then without
    any configuration changes began faltering. A simple reboot of the
    central router solved the problems. Basically what I am asking is, is
    power-cycling a necessary maintenance procedure for router and/or
    other Cisco equipment such as switches. I am asking specifically
    about the 3600 and 2600 series of routers. I have never heard of it
    being so but like I said I am a beginner.

    Thanks again for any help you can offer.

    No.
    It can however be the only way to temporarily fix some problems.
    Just yesterday I had to reboot a router due to a memory leaks from a buggy
    IOS.
    In your case it could have been anything...you need to follow the T1
    troubleshooting procedure on the Cisco website.
