Batch files

I have a small business property with 8 DLink AP's-DWL 2000AP. As they have a habit of needing a reboot now and again I usually check them every day using the manager.
I have just done an update of the firmware on one of the AP's and now it no longer appears in the AP MAnager so I have to look at it using its IP address in Explorer which will be time consuming if I update them all. Why don't DLink do an update of the manager??
I thought I could ping them each day using a batch file but don't know how to write the file. Can anyone help?

need occasional reboots will almost certainly be a 'dirty' power supply that's causing spikes. Rather than trying to find ways to treat the symptoms it might be worth investing a little time/money in tracking down the cause. There are power supply conditioners on the market, but initially a visit from a good electrician might prove helpful.

In the past I've cured such problems for clients simply by having the power supply switched to another circuit.

Point taken and could be worth investigating as there are a couple of AP's that are fine. I'll have to get the electrician in
