|Here is the situation:
FiberHome HG110 ADSL-router (provided by local company) [DHCP server]
--wireless bridge --
Linksys WRT54G v6 running DD-WRT BrainSlayer v24-sp2 (08/12/10) micro - build 14929
WinXP-PC SP3 [DHCP client]
IP is set correctly on WinXP-PC by DHCP when conneting.
Unfortunately, DHCP licence is NOT renewed ontime.
Connections are closed, and the DHCP process starts all over again.
Some secondy after that, WinXP-PC gets the IP (same as before) and everything works fine till the next DHCP renewal...
NOTE 1: When IP is set manually on WinXP-PC, everything works fine (actually, works great)
NOTE 2: When connecting WinXP-PC to one of the Ethernet ports at HG110, IP get renewed OK
(no interruption in connections).
NOTE 3: HG110 shows the correct WinXP-PC MAC in the DHCP clients status page.
Things I tried:
1- Followed every step in http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Client_Bridged
2- Disabling security
3- upgrading to recommended firmware (started with 12548)
4- Read everything about Client-Bridge al Peacock Thread
If there is any other piece of helpfull information I can provide, please let me know.
