Authentication Issues against ERX20.Birmingham4

There I was happily surfing the net and I fell off.
Went to the router and it was showing Disconnected, Authentication failed.
I re-entered my password, just in case, and it sulked and I tried again and again and eventually it let me in.
The router log shows the following (Times are off by an hour because of the problem with the router forgetting summertime settings if you are using a time server):

Can't be bothered raising a ticket but it looks like Something went a bit wrong somewhere as it only picked up when it stopped trying to authenticate against ERX20.Birmingham4 and went to pcl-ag01

Looking around, there may have been a problem with the Birmingham RAS.

I had this problem too, it all seems OK now though (touch wood!)
