    Why fix many computers when what is broken is the wifi device?

    It may just have exceeded the number of dhcp addresses it is set to give out. I setup my home wifi for to only locate 10 up addresses but in the past year we exceeded that with family members visiting. You might just need change the upper limit.

    Most routers i have used have all 255 available addresses open with exception of the of the router address. if a device is not connected the DHOC server will not continue to reserve that address, so if it is a poor signal the reinitiating of the DHCP server happens each reconnect, thats why giving devices fixed internal ip's helps overcome poor connection issues by taking the DHCP server delay out if the equation..


    but they will retain the MAC address of devices when disconnected, this allows for the Admin to restrict/widen certain devices access, without it actually being present on the network at that time.
