I want to restart my router but since i already placed this router on my roof i cant reach the power. So i decide to just turning off electric socket by pressing on off button, because my router cable connected to this power source. Does it safe ? Also there is no power button in my router TP LINK TL WN840n but i just afraid this can cause damage.

Why is this router placed externally?

With no surface mounted power buttons, it's supposed to be unplugged to power cycle - so that aspect is not going to do it any harm.
Being exposed to the elements however, is not going to be a good idea.
