Our small office (15 computers) has a SOHO firewall box that we needed to do a soft reset of the other day. The reboot was done from within the SOHO. Since doing this, all of the computers on the network will only be on the internet for 5-10 minutes. Rebooting doesn't get them back on, however typing the ipconfig /release then /renew gets each workstation back on for another 5-10 minutes, then you have to do it again.
The lease on the firewall is set to never expire, why is everyone getting kicked off so quickly? We have reset the firewall but this didn't fix the problem. We upgraded the firmware about 9 months ago. Finally, we focus on this box because it is the one handing out IP addresses (DHCP), which it has done just fine for the last two years. Did I kill it when i reset it? Anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Thanks,
