Thanks to all who advised.

FYI , it would seem that - some time ago i had 'tidied-up' and 
re-connected a stray network cable. The long-forgotten box on its 
other end had a previously and originally assigned IP number, 
subsequently used by the ARMini. Nothing was untoward until the old 
box was inadvertantly switched on when the ARMini - which I had 
assigned the same IP - was running. Result - a confused router, I 
guess. And it stayed confused even when all the extraneous cables were 
disconnected until it was switched off and then on.

If I hadn't been advised to go pinging I could have messed things up 
big style.

Many thanks. Just goes to show how a simple but obscure thing can 
cause serious strife without prolonged thinking-time and good advice.
