My Obi200 normally works fine, but seems to need a reboot every few weeks when GV stops ringing.
The device is physically located is a hard-to-reach space. Is it possible to force a reboot via obitalk.com?
I can't find the option.
Also I can't easily connect to its direct IP address, because it sits on a different subnet from the rest of my home network.

Thanks.

Use Expert mode on the portal.  The bottom of every page has a 'Submit' button.  Just click that, OK the confirmation and the device will reboot.

Another way to re-boot is to dial ***9 then 1 to confirm.

To access the OBi200 you need to do port forwarding in the secondary router. The OBi200 defaults to port 80 for Web access. I assume your secondary router also is using port 80, so you need to use a different port to log into the OBi200. The following example uses port 800.

Example:
Main router: 192.168.1.1
Secondary router's address on main router: 192.168.1.50

When the secondary router is connected to the main router, an IP address will be assigned to the router within the main subnet.

Secondary router 192.168.2.1
OBi200: 192.168.2.100
Port Forward: port 800 to 192.168.2.100 at port 80

Log into OBi200:
http://192.168.1.50:800

If your router doesn't have the option to port forward to a different port, you need to change the port on the OBi200.

System Management -> Device Admin -> Port: 800
Port Forward: port 800 to 192.168.2.100
Login: http://192.168.1.50:800

Can't the OP just create a static route in the primary router pointing to the secondary router/subnet the OBi is on? I'm unclear why port forwarding is necessary in this scenario.

Is there a valid reason why the OBi200 is on a different subnet?

Probably to isolate it from the rest of the network, qos, etc.  I have ours on a different vlan for these reasons.  Although, since switching to fiber qos is no longer much of a concern.  There's enough bw for several thousand concurrent channels.

Thank you for the info. I never played with advanced routing.

If your router supports it, you can use a static route to access the 2nd subnet.
Here are the instructions for a DD-WRT router:

The Gateway is the IP address the main router assigns to the 2nd router.

I do not see any Submit buttons?

Are you sure you are in Expert mode?

First select OBi Expert Configuration

Second select Enter OBi Expert

As they are two different devices/IP's, you don't need to use a different port at all.  Port 80 will be just fine.
