I have my rounters DHCP lease time set to 8640 (6days) for devices conencted to it, and the Photobridge will only do 12hrs. Once it's up, it does 12 again. The other two devices will go back to 6days (5d 23:59:59) after their lease is up.
I have no clue, but it might help others if you mentioned what router you have. Weren't you having the same problem with your SoundBridge?
Also, why not try static IP instead?
Sorry, it's a Linksys WRT54GS (Hardware version2) and I have my PC on a Static IP, along with my M1000. My M500 is DCHP, as well as my laptop and and HD1000. Yes, I am still trouble shooting the SB lockups. I think it started at the last Firmware upgrade for the routner, and made a post about that and I guess I am the only one with a WRT54GS running the new firmware.
Anyway, I put my M1000 on a static IP to try to fix the issue with it locking up when the lease expired. However it would still do it, at the same interval that it did when in DHCP. By chance, I had it off (no power, not standby) and since turning it back on, I have not been having the lockup issue on the M1000. It was like the rounter was still treating it as DHCP, even thought it was on a sataic IP, but you would not see it in the DHCP routing table.
Like it was a glitch or bug. Anyway, I assume this becasue the M1000 was off a tad bit longer then the lease time. So I am assuming it cleared something out (DHCP chache or something like that, if there is such a thing?) and it seems to be fine,...knock on wood. Should I have done a IPconfig /release before giving the M1000 a static IP?
Well while trouble shooting, I also noticed that the lease would never fall below 4days on any device, even though it was on a 6days lease time, so that is why I was seeing the lockups more oftern then the lease time in real time. For example, with a 6day lease, I may see it lock up every other day, or every third day. Once I would look at the DHCP table, the lease time would be at a value one would expect if the lease expired at the same time it locked up. I also noticed that the PB would never go above 12hrs. after seeing the M1000 seeming to be fixed, I wondered if I was having the same issue with the PB since it was on a 1 day lease in the beginning.
I wanted to put the PB on a static IP, but the posts made it sould difficult to do. Perhaps I should go read it again. This is not a OEM function for the PB and I have to use an editor that it not too friendly to the laymen, right?
I really hope the issue with the M1000 is behind me, it was driving me and my wife nuts! Every 24hours (or what ever time it was on), you would have to reset the M1000, or if it was royaly hosed, pull the wall wart.
Thansk for the reply BTW.
