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: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8co-YCzh2zw

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

I run a couple forums and host a few more Most likely thing is your PC or your account got sideways with either the admins or the server itself
My server will autoblock IPs that attempt questionable behavior. Usually its for a short time then resets. But if you or your PC persist you can get banned permanently If that happens the entire server disappears to you ... nothing
Nothing wrong with my PC or account. I was able to connect to the site and access my account from another location (different IP). I could not connect to this website from ANY of the PCs on my home network. The connection problem was resolved when I got a new IP address.
