    Can anybody tell me what the maximum value is that can be entered for client lease time on the RVS4000? Thank you...

    I'm thinking of buying a RVS4000, but I want to make sure I can enter relatively high lease times (e.g., 360 hours).

    My RVS4000 sez:
    Valid lease time is 0 to 4320
    (minutes). This is using the current 1.0.15 version fw.

    I checked this by trying to enter a time of 9999 - I have not actually used a clent lease time other than the default.

    may i ask as to why such a high lease time on you dhcp clients?

    outlier. can you confirm 4320 and not 43200? the RVL200 does 5-43200 minutes.

    Interesting - I checked again.
    The router accepts "4320" as valid.
    "4321" is rejected & gives the error message I mentioned above.

    Looks like 4320 minutes is legit - whether it's a bug or not!

    yep, it does. strange how the lower spec RVL200 has a longer DHCP time. I'll try to confirm if it is a bug or a feature.

    Thanks to all for the help--I appreciate it.

    I have 3 ReplayTVs on my network and they have a quirk where they'll reboot on their own once a week and try to pick up a new IP address even though I've assigned a static IP to them. During the reboot they actually ask for an initial IP address and then another one (the one that it's supposed to have) and the Replays freeze up if the client lease has expired. It's a known bug that plagues quite a few of us Replay owners. One solution that people are using is to set long lease times, so that when the Replay comes back after it's reboot, it will get the same lease. The freeze-up is annoying as I have to manually intervene by pulling the network cable until it is fully up--then I plug in the network cable and it is fine.

    4320 seems so short--that's only 72 hours. My older Netgear router does 99 hours, but I heard Linksys was much longer.

    FYI I have been advised this will be updated in the next firmware released :thumbup:
