    Running Mac OSX on a G4.

    I am experiencing this bug in my DHCP client. I am obtaining DHCP lease
    settings of about 20 seconds. After 10 seconds of lease time, my Mac client
    should ask for a lease extention at the DHCP server. But for some reason the
    client lease time expires after 20 seconds, without obtaining a lease
    extention.

    Does anyone have similar problems? What is the reason for this issue? How
    can it be resolved?

    Are you talking about getting an IP from your ISP? Or on a LAN?

    It's a test setup for a new WISP. They are using a Wireless Access Point connected to a server that does the DHCP thing. They gave us a demo and the Portable PCs (2000 and XP) both worked fine. My G4 Powerbook with Mac OS X didn't connect.
