my router may have been compromised
(weird brief outages for about a week; finally, today would not give an ip address to wired then wireless)
so it was pulled off net, hardware replaced, passwords changed
i blame "dynamic firewall" feature (no evidence but this is the only hole in firewall of which i am aware)
more cleanup left, but currently functional
no more firewall openings anymore for anything
we'll see what the future holds
