    I've had this happen with consumer-grade wireless routers at least a half-dozen times. I'll assume it was just old and buy the latest and greatest and the same things happen. They either reset or die. I've found that you get what you pay for.

    Have to agree with Kevin - I've seen lower-end devices drop config randomly
    IF it has defaulted, just reload config / reconfigure device and keep on going.
