How do you shut down a remote PC from a home network running Vista

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have two PCs both running Vista connected to a Netgear RP614 router. I am looking for a tutorial on how to install a very basic remote administration tool so that I can shutdown or reboot the remote computer. for unknown reasons this other computer is always "using" my router so that I get a "server busy" error message when I try to administrate it.

Here is the message I get when I try to log in to my router:

Server Busy
The object you requested on the server is being used by someone else(192.168.0.4,"Rachel-PC"). Please try again later.


All I have to do to solve this problem is to either reboot the router ( I can't do that remotely?) or shut down the PC. Now most of the time this Pc is not being used but it is always running Limewire which eventually breaks the internet connection after awhile.

if you go to a command prompt on the remote computer, use

Code:
shutdown -s -0
i've had that not work, but if you type the command in the run window is seems to solve it..
