    I was wondering, is there any way to reboot the WRT54G wirelessly? I had to flash the firmware via wireless and it said that it failed, the router is mounter near the celing which is about 25-30 feet up? Is there anyway for me to reset it now, since i can't log into the diag. pages? I can still ping the router and i have net thro it, just no diag, pages? Thanks

    if you have thrid party firmware yes, go to the command prompt and type "telnet <routers ip>" without the quotes your login name is root and password is the password that you use for the router. once telneted just type "reboot" without quotes.

    could you logon via ssh and send a reboot command?

    Well since he said it was so high up... walk into the basement and hit the circuit breaker that the router is on. If he is speaking remotely due to he isn't in the house... then i'm not sure what to tell him to do since he has telnet and i'm sure ssh disabled.
