Based on /r/techsupportmacgyver, this thread is for your hacky solutions to tech problems. I'll start.
The place I'm living right now is shared with the landlord. Their router is a total POS. It drops the connection all the time. I've been wanting to reboot it for a week or so now but it's in their locked unit and I don't have the login. I was really bored tonight and wanted to watch Netflix when it started acting up again.
So I did the only thing I could think to do. I messaged my friend who has a Denial of Service attack script and asked him to send it to me. I DOS'ed the router until it rebooted and now Netflix is streaming in perfect HD. WIN!
