Another little problem - quite hard to track down as it's network related.

I have an 802.11b network at home with DHCP but the JAMin refuses to get an IP addresses from DHCP - it gives the error "An IP address cannot be obtained...".

If I manually set an IP address / mask / gateway / DNS server all works fine.

I tried it on the wireless network at work and DHCP worked fine. The work network is 802.11g.

It's probably some crazy network issue that only a two PHd students and an IP packet analyser can solve, but thought posting was worth a shot.

Peace out.

Weak signal reception? Interference? "Boost" mode enabled on the router? MAC address filtering on the router?

Plenty of DHCP space available... other wireless devices (laptops) work fine...

If not soft-reset, at least a hard reset. I suggested this on another thread where spaceboy has got some problems with device timers. It could be related.
