      Sudden loss of reserved IPaddresses

      Hi
      I have a DG834GT and have been using it without problems for the last year.
      I have set up reserved addresses within the dhcp pool and up till this week it was fine.
      Now it seems the DHCP isnt allocating the reserved addresses, there are about 11 on the system, and it means kids pcs are not sticking to the schedule set up on the router.

      Any ideas why it would suddenly stop? the only change ive made is the addition of a netgear wireless pci card to one pc, and that works fine.

      There is one pc connected by ethernet cable. There are 3 PC's by wireless, 2 iphones and 3 ipods!
      oh and 2 wireless printers.

      I suspect your firmware has been updated, which it has been reported, 'breaks' some of the routers functions. I don't think Sky are prepared to do anything about it. If you want to continue with the GT, maybe you should flash it with DGTeam firmware, which is better than the Sky version in all respects.

      If your firmware has not been updated, it may be the router is showing its age and starting to fail.
