How do I restart my Iomega NAS when the GUI is inaccessible

Occasionally I receive an email message from my nas saying that the LAN connection has dropped off, but I can ping it and it the backups are OK.  However, the GUI interface to the unit is inaccessible.  The address just hangs there in a browser.

It seems the way to get accss back is to restart the box but the only way to do it is to unplug the box which does not seem to be the best way to go about it.  Pressing the power button for up to 30 seconds does nothing.

Since I can ping the box is there any way to restart the box via the command line.   I'm running window XP.

As this is a problem in a business setting I had to regain connection to the NAS by pulling the powercord and restarting it manually.  Not a the best solution. But I needed access to the machine before I got any response to my question.  I would like to try these recommendations but right now the box is working properly, but if we could leave the question open until the next time I lose connection I would love to try this out.
