I looked into dhcp renew, and it's set to 12h (it seems). If we put 
like.. 3 minutes, well........ I'll test at home and see how it 
behaves.. if we do icmp_ping in wifidog, we wouldn't need to require a 
dhcp daemon with a short lease time, it'd be all bundled in wifidog... 
we can send the echo request and not wait for it to answer, should be 
easy.. we'll see.

maxfail patch, no.

It just came back,......

It had changed IP address, the VPN wouldn't establish, I logged in with 
the external address and it worked after 5 long minutes, the router was 
just really really slow. I rebooted it, all is fine now. Hopefully 
we're not reaching the limits of the router.

It could be something silly like...... it's writing something to flash 
that we're not aware (that'd be surprising) and since the volume is 
high it behaves weirdly.

.... going to bed now, will keep an eye on it tomorrow...
