[clug-talk] IPCop Red interface ip address renewal

I am wondering if something else needs to be tested -- from my limited 
experience, both the black boxes (like a Linksys or DLink router) and 
IPCop work fine with DHCP and the ip address changes.

Perhaps if you ran ifconfig or ipconfig for windows the next time you 
lose Internet would provide some additional information compare to the 
settings after you reset the black box routers.  This seems like a 
question more suitable for our satellite experts.
