[Novalug] Not your normal consumer WiFi router

FWIW, We've had a WAP54G, then a WRT54G for many years now
and both worked fine and dandy. I run it off a UPS which filters the
house current. My part of town has really cwappy PEPCO power so
I'm fairly sure it helps. I also set the wireless channel to one that
is NOT default (which is what almost everyone around me uses) to
perhaps reduce interference. All my gear is located such that air
flow around it is open to avoid heating issues, and I blow the dust
out from time to time. No clue if either of these really matter, but
what the hey, why not.
It's usually a pain to do this, but sometimes it's interesting to swap
gear with someone who has a similar working-fine system and see
it the problem moves with the gear or stays put.
