I keep receiving the below errors on 2 PC's
Both are Windows XP Pro
Both are setup for DHCP locally, on the DHCP server they both have reservations.
--Support types = Both
MAC address is listed in here as well.

Any ideas why it's just on 2 PC's?
and any ideas on what to try to fix this issue?

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 00016C54B9E6. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired.
Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.


Added:
They are both the same Make/Model PC
Both NIC cards are by Marvell, I updated the driver to the latest one (driver from 2008 to 2012) just on 1 PC.
--I'll monitor it to see if this fixes the issue.

Driver update did nothing.

It looks like the error is only appearing after a restart of the PC, it errors right when they login or the PC comes up to the login screen.

If you remove them from reservation, do you get the same issue?

Yes, and it's only when you first login. It's fine for the rest of the day.. multiple days if the PC stays online.

For now I set them both to static and excluded their IP Addresses from the DHCP server.
-It has to be something with their NIC Card I would think, they're both running XP and will probably be replaced soonish.

Very interesting indeed, and I would suspect the NIC too but perhaps you have any firewalls / ACL that would block that set of IPs?
