Hi, I have an iMac and two windows based computers in my house. For my internet connection I'm using the local DSL provider, Sympatico. The two windows based computers get IP's from the sympatico DHCP server no problem, but my iMac will not retrieve an IP from the dhcp server at all. I've tried using IPNetMonitor to renew the lease but it still doesnt work. I have to resort to setting my address manually, but when I do that, I can't establish connections to anybody on the same subnet as me that use Sympatico dsl (ie, anybody in my area of town). So if anybody has any suggestions to get an IP from the dhcp server, it would be much appreciated.

I'm currently running three machines using IPNetRouter, with a DHCP setup. The machine that easily receives DHCP can act as your host, and you can then set up the other two as clients.
