    Is there a way to remotely reboot the WRT54GS if I'm connected to it? The router is downstairs, and I'm working upstairs, and need to reboot it to re-establish my VPN connection (see http://www.linksysinfo.org/portal/forums/showthread.php?t=49246 for details). Is there some setting I can adjust that will cause it to reboot, or another way to do it?

    Thanks,

    Steph

    Though I have not tested it, I would think that if you shelled or telneted into it and executed a reboot command, you could pull that off. It IS running linux after all. I don't remember the exact syntax for the rebbot command other than "reboot"
