I've got a Zyxel P-661HW-D1, I was wondering if anyone knows how to reboot it via telnet?

I can't seem to find the command...

Here's the ZyXEL CLI reference. At least it's a ZyXEL CLI reference. Not sure if it's exactly pertinent to your firmware version or device.

Give sys reboot a try. (see page 21 of the CLI reference for further info)

Superb, worked a treat, thanks. Strange that it didn't show up under the sys command section. – Kieron Apr 8 '10 at 7:43
