    What are the magic commands to release/renew the WAN side IP address of a router running Tomato, via the command line interface (ssh or telnet)? thanks

    Try this:
    ifdown wan && sleep 2 && ifup wan
    You may have to have wan down longer for your isp to release the ip (sometimes 20 minutes)
