I have been having all kinds of problems with my ISP, and they keep trying to fix it, tell me its fixed, and nothing has changed. So here is my question. I can check my DHCP lease time from them, and see its set at 30 mins. I know that DHCP usually requests a link at half the time its set to expire. That being said, my DHCP lease times swing from 30 minutes to 3 hours, then back to 30 mins. I am stupid in this area, but would that be the reason for the constant disconnects, and 100% packet loss I randomly get? This is WiMAX service, and I have nothing else I can switch to, so unless I can convince them there is a problem I am pretty much screwed. One day after they do something, it works fine for a day. The next day its down more than it is up. The dude that comes out here tells me that the signal strength is perfect, but I am not sure about that DHCP lease time jumping around like it is. Can anyone shed any light on this and call me a moron?
Like right now its:
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Monday, August 26, 2013 4:23:20 PM
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Monday, August 26, 2013 7:23:20 PM
I JUST renewed it again, and now it says:
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Monday, August 26, 2013 4:29:00 PM
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Monday, August 26, 2013 4:59:00 PM
Am I just retarded or is there a problem?
