    I was able to play around wiht the wireless settings, and i just changed the Beacon Interval from 100 to 10, and that was it. I received the IP which i have my laptop setting to recieved everything automatic.
    This works for a little while, after 15 minutes, the problem is back, and IP is looping and waiting to recieved one, but not get it. IP still

    it authenticate to wireless network by puting the password. , but it is no getting an IP.
    and DHCP is enable on this router. and automatic config on the pc.

    know what i did is to change the encryption to back to WEP which i did not really want it since that is why i upgrade the firware of this router (Lynsys BEFW11S4) Wireless-B. More secure encryption. i guess i will keep this router or buy a new one.
    (all laptops are getting an IP)
    last thing i can do is to reset to factory default and enter the info back?
    what you think guys?
