Just went to try connect again to try the telnet thing and i have address of 192.168.1.3 and am writing this from her connection
very strange indeed, she isnt home and nothing is changed AFAIK
Working now anyway
I am logged into webGUI is there anything i can do from here to help me if this happens again? Can I change DHCP settings or something?
Strange indeed, maybe the threat of telnet scared it into submission
If the router has the option, you could set a scheduled reboot for say 4am each night or whenever you won't be online
If the router bugs out like that again, and a reboot fixes it, that might keep you going until shes home
