hi i was wondering is it is possible to restart a belkin router without doing it through the reset button, or through the 192.168 thing. basically im connected to a router through wire, however the router has a password on it so i cannot restart it through the 192 thing. also the room in whic the router is in is locked. all i need to do is restart the router so i can get the internet back, bacause it says 'not connected'.

thanks

yourll find a lot of real life networking products arnt like the movies, where there are 'backdoors' and such to get access to devices. If a developer ever did code some sort of back door into a device, chances are he would keep it secret, If it became public knowledge that a networking device has a known backdoor to log into it, then chances are it wouldnt sell very well.

erm....... if the router is in a locked room open it? If the router is not yours then what the hell you doing trying to reboot it?
