    Cool router question

    After you have successfully gone to 'enable' functions, You should be able to execute a 'reload' command to reboot the router.

    Get to privileged mode (enable) then conf term
    change config-reg to 0x2142 , CTRL-Z, reload
    but you wont maintain your telnet connection. (shrug)

    Generally speaking if you don't have physical access, should you be in the router at all?

    just wondering.......
