I am using an SMC 8Port Barricade Router as a DHCP server. Is this ok? I was wondering if my Wireless Access Point configuration settings might have something to do with this. I have powersavingmode=off but powersleepmode=100 is set and I'm wondering if this is the culprit. I havn't figured out how to reinitialize powersleepmode and I'm not sure if I should increase are decrease the setting. > you can configure it to bind an IP to your MAC address.
