I haven't tested yet with more clients (at this moment, I am having a cross cable between my new server and my client.
Ofcourse I can assign fixed IP addresses to some of my clients, but that is not what I want...
But if this is normal behaviour, I might look at it later... It's just an esthetical thing.
