    Dec 24 18:00:18 ntp client: time is synchronized to ntp.demon.nl
    Dec 24 19:00:05 dhcp client: deconfig: lease is lost
    Dec 24 19:00:06 dhcp client: bound IP : 82.161.x.yy from 82.161.6.1
    Dec 24 20:00:05 dhcp client: deconfig: lease is lost
    Dec 24 20:00:06 dhcp client: bound IP : 82.161.x.yy from 82.161.6.1
    Dec 24 20:00:18 ntp client: time is synchronized to ntp.demon.nl
    Dec 24 21:00:11 dhcp client: deconfig: lease is lost
    Dec 24 21:00:12 dhcp client: bound IP : 82.161.x.yy from 82.161.6.1
    Dec 24 22:00:10 dhcp client: deconfig: lease is lost
    Dec 24 22:00:11 dhcp client: bound IP : 82.161.x.yy from 82.161.6.1
    Dec 24 22:00:24 ntp client: time is synchronized to ntp.demon.nl
    Dec 24 23:00:15 dhcp client: deconfig: lease is lost
    Dec 24 23:00:16 dhcp client: bound IP : 82.161.x.yy from 82.161.6.1

    So it seems it has a problem with renewing the dhcp lease, so roughly every now and then it drops the wan connection.

    Anyone an idea how to fix this?

    I will try another firmware tomorrow to see if that helps.
    Obviously you are getting your IP from your ISP (demon). Seems normal to me this takes 1 - 2 minutes.

    Solution: Don't use automatic IP for this type of config unless you have a truly dynamic IP.

    I can't set it fixed because my ISP drops the connection after the lease is lost. But it would be nice if it would renew its lease before it runs out and gets dropped.

    Have you actually tried this?

    IMHO there is no lease to drop if you use fixed IP. You will should only run into trouble if your ISP changes your IP on a regular basis.

    Demon Internet gives out 'virtual' static IP addresses. The client has to use a DHCP client to obtain its WAN address. So dhcp lease drops do happen. That doesn't have do disrupt the connection.

    It does. I could actually see my ftp session getting dropped at the exact same time my lease runs out. In the log it says lease lost and then renewed, but then all sessions are dropped (and not all get reconnected).

    Setting the speed of the wan port to anything other than auto only works for half duplex mode, my zyxel won't play ball with 100 FD fixed or 10 FD fixed. After a minute or 5 it reverts to 100 hd or 10 hd if set to the FD setting.

    Seems my problem has something to do with the dhcp lease on the wan port as it isn't due to high bandwith or many connections.

    I always thought that a dhcp client did a renewal request before the lease runs out so the lease won't expire, but to me it seems my lease expires (and isp drops the connection), then the asus detects lease is gone and then it asks for a new lease.

    I am going to try and ask my ISP if they can see anything strange about this lease issue and hope to find an answer to tis quest.

    At the moment I am installing my laptop with debian, and I watched the ftp session drop when the dhcp lease was due to be expired.

    I am currently running 1.8.1.7-3, would an upgrade to the 1.9.7.1 CR2 make a difference in this matter?

    Otherwise I'll switch my zyxel back into router mode and hook the asus up with one of the lan ports as this connection dropping is driving me crazy.

    Yes, try 1.9.2.7-2 please, it could probably print more debug output. I've some thoughts on the matter, but I would like to have more info.

    Right, just got of the phone to my ISP (not bat at 22:00 hrs huh ). Dhcp server logs state that every now and then I am trying to request an ip address like a lunatic. Not all the time, but my dhcp behaviour is very strainge according to the helpdesk.


    I asked if I could recieve a little piece of the log file for diagnose purposes but they weren't keen on that. So I asked them how I can fix my problem if I can't get the log file.

    They said then I can discover all about their network. I said I only want the piece concerning myself, and the rest you can block out or cut out or so. The helpdesk dude is going to ask his superior tomorrow and maybe when I am lucky I get a piece of logging.

    So my problem seems definately DHCP on the wan port. Don't have a clue how to investigate this any further without the dhcp server logs so anyone with a good idea?

    Thanks Oleg, I will update to the newer version soon if I have time to do it. If there is more info to be found with that firmware then I am willing to try and supply you with as much info as it can cough up.

    does the save settings feature work correctly so I don't have to put all settings in manually if I want to get back to the 1.8.7-3 that I am happily using at the moment ?

    You do not need to reset to defaults at all then switching between these firmwares.
    I will then probably compile test version for you, with increased debugging in the dhcp stuff to figure out the problem.
