It's often possible to get a better deal by switching but at least you have a new hobby to occupy you. Try seeing what processes are kicking in when you boot up. There could be some software working behind the scenes at start up. It'd be easier just to ignore the messages though.The router works fine actually but thank you so much for your response. It needs fixing often; I feel the logs point more to the answer than just jettisoning the machine. I'd like to pinpoint where the router starts behaving oddly so I can catch it faster. The service provider and other equipment functions well and doesn't seem to be the catalyst.
