I've never seen a router with a 'shutdown' option, many have 'reboot' options to make changes take effect or get around memory leaks or other bad coding.

Or you could look into X-10 (or other remote) controls to remotely pull the power from it.

I also have a Zyxel. Via the web interface, there isn't a shutdown option. There is, however, an option to disable the access point (Wireless -> Basic Settings). What is it that you're trying to accomplish by shutting it off?

Also, check your firmware -- it looks like there is an upgrade for your model:


(Double-check, since the wrong one would be a Bad Thing.)
