Hmm... If they're not responding to discovery then that's a bigger
problem. Is the firmware current?

The only option I can think of there is X10. I got a kit for $5 YEARS
ago that would allow you to power off/on things over the powerline.
One of the plug blocks had an antenna on it and a serial dongle you
could attach to a computer. Then you could just send an OFF signal,
wait a few seconds, and an ON signal.
