I have a linksys BEFSX41 with the latest firmware... All was working OK until one day one computer would not connect.  I look in the router and the IP address that is normally used is not shown on the DHCP table.  I had the router set to max users of 6 (that was everyone on the system including printers)  Now for somereason the router is not reusing 192.168.1.101 and needed to increase the number of users to 7 since the router is not "release/reusing" 192.168.1.101.

Any ideas how to fix this?
