    Is there a way to reset the BEFSR81 from the web console, instead of having to physically power it down, or use the reset button? My router is far from my computer, and I'd like to be able to reset it remotely.

    Another question: Are there any hidden web pages in this router? For example, these are the pages on the main Setup menu:
    Are there others (for advanced diagnostics, unsupported features) that arent documented?

    You may be wondering why I would need to reset this router so frequently that I would want to do it remotely. So am I. This is the worst firmware I have ever encountered in a router. I thought that paying more for a Cisco/Linksys product would alleviate some of the complaints that I have had with cheaper routers. That is not the case. This device is unacceptable, and I am returning it to the seller.

    Yes - Try SNMP

    Send an SNMP set to this MIB object "" with the value of 1.

    It will reboot.
