My Shaw Modem is in Bridge mode as I have my own firewall and wireless equipment behind it. I have issues with the DHCP assigned IP Address. For example, if I acquire a lease on one computer, I am not able to release it back and use another piece of equipment. Let's say PC1 and PC2. PC1 get the lease (and has had it for a LONG time). If I do a dhcp /release, the PC will release the address but PC2, once in place will not acquire an address. If fact, if I try this, I have to call into tech support and have them clean up the leases, etc on their end.
This seems strange to me as there may be a time that I may want to replace PC1 with PC2 and having to call in every time seems a bit unusual.
Does Shaw not support this activity? Any suggestions welcome
