Can Plus.Net remote reboot my router?

I am unable to remote connect to my router and was wondering if it is possible for Plus.Net to remote reboot it?

I'm not sure if they can do it directly, but I know a man that would likely know @bobpullen  I can think of a crafty way of doing it and I assume it's a Plusnet modem/router otherwise I'd guess the answer would be no.

Assuming the connection hasn't gone down of course..

This is of course true and maybe the reason the OP can't access it, but then the 'man that can' would be able to discover that and at least raise a fault on the OP's behalf Wink

Do you still need this doing? Are you just wanting the connection restarting or is there some reason you need the router itself physically rebooting?

We can easily remotely kick a connection, which generally would reconnect.
