    First let me explain how my network is configured currently:
    On the groundfloor I have a cablemodem that is connected to the Linksys BEFW11S4. On the 2nd floor I have 2 pc's that are connected by means of a switch. On one of the pc's I installed a wireless USB dongle (D-Link DWL-G122). I tested the wireless connection between this dongle and the BEFW11S4 succesfully.
    Then I created a network bridge (XP build-in functionality) between the wireless dongle and the regular network card, in order to give the 'wired' pc's the possibility to connect to the internet over the wireless connection.
    Problems taht I'm having now:
    - The DHCP server from the BEFW11S4 doesn't provide IP config to the pc's in the wired network (only 1 can obtain an IP adress whic is then associated with the MAC adress of the USB dongle).
    - Once every 30 minutes I loose the IP adress provided to me by the Internet provider (to the cable modem)

    Can anyone provide me with some usefull tips what I do wrong...

    Thanks in advance!
