    Frequently, after a computer on the LAN has been turned off or disconnedted for a while, it will not automatically get an ip address when it is reconnected. (All computers on the LAN are configured to get ip and DNS addresses automatically, and the router is configured to be a DHCP server and to do NAT.) This gets fixed (for a short while) if I log into the router, view the SETUP page to make sure that DHCP is enabled (it always says that it is) and then click on "save settings". Anybody know of a fix for this?

    It also gets fixed if I reset the router, but then I have to restore all the settings.

    If none of the computers on the LAN have or can get an ip address via DHCP, accessing the router requires that I temporarily have to reconfigure one of them to have a static ip address.

    Is this a known problem? Is there a known fix?
