    just used to it on the old linksys - if there's one on the back, don;t see why they can;t put it in the admin console.

    sometimes when the router's been on for a while, it;s good to reboot it. since there's no power switch, i guess netgear are going alll out minimalistic.

    The "Hard Reset Hole" is located next to the Antenna.

    although i am a muppet, i did managed to work that one out - just wanted to find out the remote soft reset!

    cheers sparky - sorry, it wasn;t an obvious place for me to look in diagnostics.


    though i advise users to do this sometimes, i do like to reset devices a little more gracefully now and again to avoid possible damage to the power unit ;-)

    it's just the same as turning off and on m8??? The same as flicking the switch on the plug socket...what will you do if you have to move the router to a different plug?

    That is the graceful way. The non-graceful way is to smack it around until it reboots on its own. :p
