It's just a generic router so my wife can share our cable connection on
her (Windows XP) computer. It happens so irregularly it may be an attack
of some sort. And its always cured by a reboot. Still I'd like to get
to the bottom of it because it fills up logs quickly sending that
dhcprequest every 4 or 5 seconds. I'm leaning towards it being some sort
of bug as Google turned up dozens of other people suffering the same
or similar situations.
