    Hello,

    I have a router and I could disconnect/reconnect fine, but today I get a new router and I can't find the disconnect/connect button in the 192.168..

    You guys know how else to reboot the router, without manually going to the router to turn on/off.

    My router model is from billion.com

    Thanks

    press reset button on router itself or you can read manual. It is small and useless peace of list, where you can find very detailed tuttorial

    Not all routers support the ability to reboot from the web interface. If the router supports it, you could flash DDWRT onto it and then use command line to reboot.

    If you can't find a button to reboot from the interface, then it doesn't support it.

    Flashing your router to ddwrt is probably a bad idea if you didn't understand what I said the first time since you can brick your router doing it. So you're left getting out of your chair to reboot.

    Found the solution, actually, there is no disconnect button, but if I just click save in the basic settings page, it also reboot the router and ip.

    Thanks
