Toshiba satellite wired connection issues with zyxel router

Bit of an oddity here, I have an office with a zyxel router. In the office there is an ibm laptop, a dell laptop a dell desktop, a terrastation and network printer and a netgear switch. All of these can connect to the network via a wired connection without issue. In the same office there are 3 toshiba satellite laptops. All of which have no problem connecting to the zyxel router via a wireless connection. However none of the satellite's can connect directly through a wired connection to the zyxel. They are not given IP addresses. I have tried different routers on the toshiba machines including a netgear, a d-link and a belkin, all of which give the toshiba's an ip address as normal. I've updated drivers and I've updated the router firmware. Nothing seems to fix the problem. Does anyone have any idea as to why this might be happening and how to fix it? Thanks

You might want to contact ZyXEL via email for help. This is certainly odd.
One thing you didn't mention; have you attempted to use static IP addresses?
Here's ZyXEL's support address - email: support@zyxel.co.uk

I have tried static addresses to no avail. Also adjusted the flow controls and link speeds on the Tosh cards to no avail.

I have dropped a mail to the address you provided and will let you know if they come up with something.

Many thanks for the input.

Have been sent another firmware version from Zyxel but have not had time to install it yet. I'll let you know if it worked.
