Hmm, well I have very rarely cycled the modem itself, and I wouldn't say I
have needed to cycle the router "often" but the last several months or so
have seen some random points when it needed it.

Yeah, getting another cable going from basement to upstairs is the whole
problem. I suppose I'll leave the router downstairs for the time being.
