Automatic renewal of network config through DHCP

Since I did an upgrade to dapper (I know it is still beta!), my dhcp client doesn't automatically renew my ip-config anymore. Any of you know what this could be?

It does request (and get) a ip when /etc/init.d/networking is run, but after about half an hour, it does not renew and the address is released. Therefore, my internet is disconnected every half an hour .

find where your 'lease' settings are and make them to whatever you want (depending on how long you keep your machine could set it for hours, days, weeks, etc).
