You & I are both making assumptions
I am confident that the 'computer addict' isn't fluent enough to know how to get into (modified) router firmware/ settings, and you are. That's our only difference- we are not disagreeing about what could be achieved with adequate technical skills around the maypole.
Your point regarding being able to reset something is noted, along with using LiveCDs for various reasons (they have made certain routine tasks much easier, that's for sure).
