I doubt that a 5-10 minute power down will expire your IP address. I recommend you power off the router before going to bed and power it back up in the morning. There is a way to release the IP via the Actiontec menus, but I couldn't get it to work. Here's a YouTube video on how to do it:

I did release/renew unplugged actiontec for 30 seconds , plug back in WORKED!
