Quoting Jeffrey Goldberg <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:

This is particularly a FreeBSD question, but finding that there isn't a newsgroup for DHCP (and I am running dhcpd on FreeBSD), I'll ask here.

We've got a Wii in the house, and I've got an entry for it in my  dhcpd.conf

host wii { hardware ethernet 00:19:1d:dd:66:d3; fixed-address wii.ewd.goldmark.org; }

which correctly resolves to

And everything works fine. However, the Wii keeps on making requests every few minutes. Here is a bit of the dhcpd logs. The requests come at irregular 1, 2, 5, and 9 minute intervals in this bit of the log.

Jan 9 11:59:08 kreacher dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for from 00:19:1d:dd:66:d3 via em0 Jan 9 11:59:08 kreacher dhcpd: DHCPACK on to 00:19:1d:dd: 66:d3 via em0

[additional log entries snipped]

Was there a question in there somewhere? :)

You could try putting a long-ish default-lease-time statement in your subnet clause in dhcpd.conf. See also the max-lease-time and min-lease-time statments in dhcpd.conf(5).

If you have those already and the Wii isn't respecting them then that's an issue to take up with Nintendo. You could also consider setting the IP on the Wii statically (not sure if that's supported or if you move it around to different networks at all) or trying to adjust dhcpd's logging if that's all that's bothering you...
