Hello all: I have been through the posting here and cannot find an answer
for my question. I keep getting errors in the event logger that states "The
IP address lease 192.168.1.100 for the Network Card with network address
000D88563C8B has been denied by the DHCP server 192.168.1.1 (The DHCP Server
sent a DHCPNACK message)." AND "Your computer was not able to renew its
address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with
network address 000D88563C8B. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to
try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server."

Cable Modem --> Linksys Wireless Router (latest firmware)--> two computers
(one XP Pro on wireless) and the other XP home on cable - both updated
constantly.

Both systems show the same issue. NEITHER has any problems accessing the
internet, or each other - but they both get errors trying to renew their ip
addresses (router is set up to 1 day lease).

XP Home system however, slows to a crawl when this happens, and leaves
instances of ie-explore running.

No virus's, adware, etc. that I know if. Run Norton Anti-virus 2005,
windows firewall has been both off and on, run ad-aware, spybot, and
microsoft anti-spyware.

ipconfig /all shows:

Any ideas why this is happening, and why it slows down XP Home but not XP Rpo?

Thanks, Larry
