    Why you are resetting the router?! you have access to the router and you want to change your ip, or you are resetting to unlock the wps?!

    I guess you mean that you are just restarting to get a new IP right? And even though it's not yours I guess you have the owners concent?

    If so I can't see a problem.

    I used to do this ages ago - 20 times or more/day and had no issues at all.

    It's not going to break the router, and I doubt there is anything in the TOS of your ISP that prevents you from getting too many fresh IP's every day. Hahaha just imagine all the customers that would get in trouble for a shitty internet connection.
