My XP machine doesn't seem to want to take a DHCP lease from my linux gateway/firewall.... It worked for approx 1 day, almost to the hour, and then stopped.
This is sort of a clarification from this post:
Is there some reason my XP machine won't connect?
Apologies for the double post if it's considered thus, I'm looking at it now from a different angle.
When I disconnect it from the plug on the wall, and plug it into the linux box, it gets a funny IP, certainly not the 192.168.x.x it should, and refuses to connect to the lgateway. Request timed out, or DHCP server not available.
