I recently got roadrunner 10Mbit service, and I had to go out and buy a router. I chose the Belkin N Wireless router.

But prior to getting the router, I had the modem hooked directly to my computer, and everything was A OKAY.

Now, that I have the router, it disconnects itself every few hours, and I might disconnect from a game I was playing, reconnect to IRC, etc etc.

I had originally moved the gateway from 2.1 to 1.1, but now I changed it back to 2.1, and the lease option is on FOREVER.

But, I checked the router logs and found this every few hours:


02/19/2010 18:01:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Receive Ack from 10.81.64.1,Lease time=3600
02/19/2010 18:01:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Domain name = nyc.rr.com
02/19/2010 18:01:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Send Request, Request IP=24.90.87.101
02/19/2010 18:01:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Receive Offer from 10.81.64.1

02/19/2010 18:01:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Domain name = nyc.rr.com
02/19/2010 18:31:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Receive Ack from 10.81.64.1,Lease time=86400
02/19/2010 18:31:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Domain name = nyc.rr.com
02/19/2010 18:31:44 DHCP Client: [WAN]Send Request, Request IP=24.90.87.101

How can I stop the lease from 'renewing'?

You can't. The renewal interval on the WAN is under the ISP's control. I would probably call them and mention that their intervals are really short for an ISP - 1 hour, which means you request renewal at half that interval, or every 30 minutes. The second lease, at 18:30, is for a more reasonable 24 hours. Curious that you got two different durations from apparently the same DHCP server.
