Original commenter here. Talk about a blast from the past!

It was indeed surprising and scary for me too. Hard to recall precise details from a decade ago but I think that both the devices connected because I used the same password on them and while the reset caused the test WAP to become a repeater, it still had the credentials necessary to connect to the production WAP.

I did not have enough time or resources to find the root cause because we were still getting back up, I believe after Hurricane Charley.

Hey, a reunion! In case you were wondering, the reason I submitted this was that it recently came up in /r/TenYearsAgoOnReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/TenYearsAgoOnReddit/comments/5jo2dk... (then ctrl-f "original post")

That's awesome. Thanks for bringing back the nostalgia :)
