New ATT&T routers (2Wire based) have a "spam" function that will reset your router if it detects:
Spam
P2P
2 people refreshing COD4 servers simultaneously

According to the ATT&T technician I spoke with this is "intended" to protect the network against spam. So really, there's no way to possible log how many times this happens to people on the client side. If too much traffic passes through your 2Wire, it will reset until you basically get so frustrated you decide P2P and looking for COD4 servers on multiple PC's is unethical.
