Ah.  It hadn't occurred to me that that was a possibility - all the 
routers I've used have been set manually - but I suppose for the LOLs 
running B&Bs there's an advantage to having the router automatically set 
the channel to the least congested channel available.  So I'll retract 
my suggestion that the router's hacked (though, I'd be a little 
surprised if it isn't - that just isn't the likely reason for a problem 
:-) Any router operated by somebody with so little knowledge, in an 
urban area, is probably being used illegitimately).
