    Networking is not my forte, so the answer may be
    painfully obvious.....My connection to my wireless router
    (any computer, whether via wireless or ethernet) is
    dropping after a minute. I went and looked in the logs
    in the base station management tool, and it looks like
    this every time (with IP's masked to protect the
    innocent :)):

    "2004/05/30 07:11:44 DHCP Client : Obtained lease for
    192.xx.xx.xx on 5/30/2004 7:11:41; lease expires on
    5/30/2004 7:12:41 "

    It appears my lease time is only one minute. Yet in the
    base station management tool, I re-verified that I have
    the lease time set to two weeks. Could it be my DSL
    modem that is in front of my wireless router is the

    Very frustrating as I can not download anything that
    takes over a minute.....*sigh*

    If you're not using WPA encryption, go into the Properties of your LAN in
    Network Connections, on the Wireless Networks tab, highlight your LAN in the
    Preferred networks box and select the Properties button. Go to the
    Authentication tab and make sure you don't have a check mark in "Enable IEEE
    802.1x authentication..."

  3. You should try a hard reset of the base station. Back to factory
    defaults. Please post which base station and which viersion firmware
    you are using.
