Yep I believe that is the way to solve the problem which is why I posted that info, too bad Jimbo hasn't responded.

They are using up all 100 IP's in under 24 hours. Few hours for lease time should do it.
Hi there
being watching the Euro 2012 footie so no time to respond but THANKS..

I found it in the end -- Lease time -- we've set it to 3 hrs -- now working great

It's enough -- those guys who stay longer have no pr oblem re-logging on again.

thanks everybody !!!

It's funny how everyone jumped onboard the DHCP lease issue AFTER I pointed out how to fix it LOL.

I guess the correct answer to the problem seems more obvious after everyone reads it.

Figured that would do the trick Jimbo.
