An ip address with a last octet of zero is technicall valid but some softare still dosn't like it.
I suspect your pobablem is unrelated to using linux. What is the dhcp server?
Have you checked what lease time it is giving out?

You mean your laptop's ip?
> So you connect one and change the address then the next etc.
>After that you change the ip address from the laptop to 126.96.36.199
You can't use the same ip for your laptop and the access point. [/
As I stated under winme I had (and have) no problems at all, but I want to find out what the trouble is in linux.
laptop <--->hub<----->ap <--////--> network<--->router/dhcp
(there is no connection to the network!!! I pulled the plug)
No dhcp every thing has its own IP.
The procedure is as follows, give your laptop an IP in the same subnet as
the AP. Access the ap. Change the ip number from the ap. (of course after that, you have to change also the ip from the laptop) But the ap does not want to change ..................................
It gives an error about lease time, but there is no dhcp at all. The ap has a dhcp build in, but that one is disabled, and I am not at the network at all, perhaps you can imagine why I am wondering what happens.......
