I'm running Slackware 10, connected via DHCP to a wired port on a Linksys 4-port/Wireless router. I've noticed that if I put my machine into standby mode (by hitting the power button) and I don't come back for "a while" (say 24 hours or so), when I try to access any network resources or the internet, I get "no connection to blah". It seems that the length of time over which this happens varies - I haven't timed it exactly by any means, but if I come back after 8-12 hours I don't have a problem. I've attempted trying some of the "dhcpclient" commands with no luck. Is there a way to set up the initial boot dhcpclient lease time to be "forever", or is there a way to renew the lease? I have seen another post in this forum regarding DHCP leases, and if this happens again I'm going to try a couple of the suggestions there, but if anyone has any further suggestions I'd love to hear them... (I apologize for the lack of detail here.
Thanks in advance
