WRT160n v3 flawed 3.0.02 firmware: DHCP can’t keep track of leases: IP conflicts all over the place

Very often here at the office we have loss of internet connection even though it seems the local network connection never goes down.

Besides losing the internet connection, my laptop frequently displays a message saying there’s an IP conflict, which doesn’t make much sense as the only DHCP server running on our network is the router’s

This screen shows that my computer has IP address 192.168.1.104 and it’s not listed under DHCP client list. Anyone care to help understand why?

Update 2010-11-11:  I decided to start using DD-WRT on this router.

Firmware: Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) mini
Time: 14:54:41 up 2 days, 5:27, load average: 0.13, 0.11, 0.05
So far, no more of those crazy problems the default firmware has. You may want to do yourself a favor and check if your router is supported.
