thanks, klbf. I read the stuff but it's too complicated for me to follow or understand.
The lease times I quoted were assigned while not using my router (WRT54G). Just with the laptop connected directly, then the desktop connected directly.
I was hgoping to find the setting that made the lease time the same for my laptop as for my desktop, without really understanding much about it :smileywink:
Thanks for the help, guys.
My wireless router is a Linksys WRT54GS, but the lease times I read were with that router out of the system, computer connected directly to the Motorola "Surfboard" modem from Charter Communications.,
I think Ken has the right answer. Given my lack of knowledge and disinterest in studying the subject deeply enough, I'll live with what I have and not try the "burger flipper"!!
