Hi, what happens when the lease for my wireless network expires how do I set the lease time span for my wireless network? Can I set it to infinite? I am using a TP-Link TL-WR542G wireless router. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check out the TCP/IP Guide and the page that discusses DHCP Lease Lifecycle. This will help you understand the DHCP protocol and address lifecycle. An infinite address lease would be considered a static or a reserved address. It depends on the client and how the tcp/ip stack handles address lifecycle as to whether you will lose your connection or not. Windows behavior is that clients typically keep a “sticky” address and do not lose it unless either statically assigned or another DHCP server responds.
