    Droid phones are killing my router

    Hello,
    Just bought 2 new droid phones and I keep getting problems with the same Ip address being handed out to different devices and computers. Which kills one. Never had this problem before.

    Can't imagine it would be the phones causing the issues. Check to make sure the MAC addresses on the WiFi settings aren't the same on the phones, the probably are not, but lets start there.

    What is the lease expiration time set as on your router?

    I would change that to something like 2 days. Also, did you check to see if the two devices have different WiFi mac addresses? If you know the mac addresses of the devices you can reserve them in the router so that each device always gets the same IP address no matter what. Changing the lease time might help as well.

    I said that above lol, reservations are static IP's on the router side so you can keep DHCP enabled on the device for when you go places and use other's wifi.
