I am trying to share my internet connection with my Raspberry Pi from an XP server.  It shows that it is shared.  I found that after some time, the Pi looses the address, and is not able to request another one, with the dhcpdiscover requests failing.  I decided to remove the internet sharing, and re-enable it, and it works again now.  any ideas as to what is going on, and how to resolve this?

also, I am not able to ping the Pi from my laptop.  They look to be on the same subnet mask.

Shouldn't the Pi have a static address.
