Remotely restart (Reboot) router

I need to restart my router whilst away from home.

 

Is this even possible?

 

If I contact Sky Technicall, can they restart it for me?

The only way would be inadvisable due to security issues

 

Log onto you hub 

Go to advanced settings and sign in

Go to remote managenent and take a note of your public ip address and port number (usually 8080) and enable remote management.

@BronwynBrown that address only works from devices connected to your home network it wont work when you are not on your home network.

You could plug the router into a smart plug, then you would be able to turn its power off and back on remotely. That would effectively repoot the router and remove any security issues with logging into the router.
