XP Box won't take DHCP information or an IP from Linux gateway
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.
there is some special code you have to put in the dhcp conf file, but i forgot where i found it and am working though the same problem
do a google search
This is what is in my dhcp right now. fairly close anyway. you should try this and see how it works out for you.
