Re: What would keep my Linksys wireless router from assigning an IP ad
Hi Dean. The DHCP on the router can cause a little problem on occasion if you do not shut your computer off. What happens up here is that your router gets an IP address form the ISP. They "lease" the address for up to 30 days and if you do not shut your computer off occasionally, the lease expires and does not renew so you end up with a dead link to the ISP. With 6 computers in our house we usually get them all shut off at some point but the "boy" forgets sometimes and I end up doing the ruthless pre-emption (AKA Power Plug) to reset it. Ours is a D-Link.
