wrt54g + dhcp renewal every 2 min

    I am noticing a strange problem recently..

    Whenever one of my client machine(running redhat linux) does a DHCP renewal request,it is failing initially once(DHCPNAK) and then getting a new IP from the router every 2 minutes. Why is it getting new ip AND why is it trying it every 2 minutes?
    The leasetime in the WRT54G is 1 hour.

    Someone had a similar problem as stated http://forums.speedguide.net/showthread.php?t=185835

    Please suggest.
