Did anybody move it while cleaning or something? I know you've said in the past a couple of inches one way or the other makes a big difference for you guys...It happened here yesterday. I moved the router to get to something in the cabinet beneath it...Josh started complaining, so I moved the router over a couple of inches and it went back to normal.
