I always forget this, and I forget that it applies to routers too. I’ve been having some weird problems lately: I couldn’t connect to my bank’s website, my son couldn’t connect to the AppStore from his iPod, and I couldn’t view my favourite forum, Lampworketc.com (LE). Actually that’s not entirely true about LE, you could see the page partially loaded (all the ads) but then it just hung. But if I turned off the wireless connection, bam, all of a sudden the page would finish loading. Lots of subtle, weird problems. Anyway, after puzzling about this for a few days I finally thought about restarting the router, and my computer too, for good measure. Ha! Problem solved!
