How to translate and rotate the heading of landscaped pages?

I have a document that is typset in portrait, using the article class, that contains a single landscape page (to accommodate a large table). I want to have the page numbers in the center of the footer for every page, so I'm using \pagestyle{plain}. However, when I use the \usepackage{pdflscape} package and \begin{landscape}, the page number is on the left side, in the center, which is directly overlapping my table. I guess pdflscape only rotates the contents, not the page numbers. I need this page number in the same place as the others: at the bottom of the page in the center. Using \thispagestyle{plain} or \thispagestyle{headings} doesn't change it all either.

    You could just use the sidewaystable environment from the rotating package. It provides a portrait-style page for landscape-style tables. – Werner Dec 5 '11 at 19:53

Here is an example, as an alternative, that uses the rotating package to rotate the landscape-style table on a portrait-style page, which doesn't affect the page style:

enter image description here

\usepackage{rotating}% http://ctan.org/pkg/rotating
\usepackage{lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/lipsum
  This is a sideways table.
