Hi, I have a new WRT54G v8 router. My ISP gives out DHCP addresses, which are NOT tied to specific MAC addresses (I can connect it to any of my home computers and it gets it DHCP address fine). Things were fine with the WRT54G for about a month, but suddenly the linksys router stopped getting DHCP-issued addresses from the ISP (no use of dhcp-release/renew buttons, resets, power cycles etc). But, when i connect the ISP's cable directly to my PC, all works fine. (Btw, the DHCP server within the linksys seems fine, as it issues IP addresses to my computers properly) Thinking there was a problem with the router, I checked it at my friend's place (served by different ISP) and it worked fine. It works fine in my office LAN as well. Contacted my ISP, but the best answer they can give is ...that "we haven't received any similar compliants from other customers...so must be something wrong with your router !!" So, what is this weird compatibility problem between the V8 dhcp client and my network's DHCP server ? I thought those things were pretty standardized by now. Any help ? (other than shifting to DD-wrt, which I am slightly worried since I did not see any links about ppl saying that they shifted v8 to dd-wrt nicely..infact read more about errors and reduced speed etc) ... Thanks in advance.. Samir PS - i upgraded the firmware to the latest available from linksys..i think v8.002 date d jun/jul 2007 ..(dont rem exactly now).
