I have a netgear router wireless gateway 814v2 and there is a section called strangely enough "Remote Management". It has a section there that will show you the correct address and port to enter into the browser to access the router via a web interface. It should look like this:
Remote Management Address:
Where the XX.XX.XX.XXX is the IP address of your router and the :8080 is the port
Enable the remote management features of the router.
when you want to access the remote management open the browser, enter the IP address and port number like this http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8080
then press enter. When it connects to the router it will present you with a login screen enter the admin name and password for the router bingo you are in.
I use it all the time from work to kill the internet services, so my son knows when to go to bed.
