WRT54GS Cannot obtain IP if Switch users in Win XP

    I using a WRT54GS with hyperwrt 2.0. I am using WAP PSK encryption.
    Laptop is a Dell 700M with Windows XP Home.

    I have 2 user accounts on the laptop. Whenever one user logs in, everything works fine. DHCP obtains an IP and I'm up and running.

    If I switch to the second user, dhcp is not able to obtain an IP for the second account. The laptop connects and disconnects from the router off and on. I get a strong signal, then i get dropped and no signal. When i get a strong signal, it's unable to obtain an IP. Then it kicks me off.
    If i switch back to user 1, I get connected without any problems.

    Whoever logs in first, gets to keep the connection.

    How can I fix this. I was using a WRT54G wiht hyperwrt 1.4 without any problems before. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
