How to reboot NETGEAR WNR3500 router remotely

I've hunted high and low in the menu options and can't find a "reboot now" button. So after much searching, I finally found an easy way to reboot my router... On the basic settings screen, hit the "Test" button. I make no changes, just hit test. The router reboots and takes you to a test web page.

I need to reboot my router because it periodically doesn't accept wireless connections (like from my iPhone or PowerBook) and that's a royal PITA. I COULD just pull power, but it's more convenient to pull up a web browser.
