Device Can't Communicate Over Wi-Fi After Resetting Router

Issue: There are instances where after a user resets their router (unplug/reset/power outage, etc) the Whistle device has trouble communicating over Wi-Fi. This appears to be related to when the router is reset it changes channels causing DHCP failures.
