Not nice.   Many auto reboot devices have programmable auto ping delays of many, many minutes which should prevent re-booting during a firmware update. 

Like Tom I also accidentally turned the router power off instead of reboot from two States away.   Had to ask someone to go to the site to restore it.   Needs to be an "Are you sure?" popup for this action.

I just bricked a Netgear router because of that. The auto reboot
turned off the router in the middle of a firmware update.
I did get it back by using the netgears tftp instructions but they did
not work at first (10 tries) until i did them a bit differently than
instructed.
Whew...
