I'm unable to get my Actiontec router to assign any IP addresses via DHCP. This has never been a problem in the past because I've always been able to assign a static IP to the devices on my network. However, I recently got a Roku box that requires DHCP, and now I have to solve this problem.
DHCP is on. It's assigned the range of 192.168.1.110 to 192.168.1.150. Machines that are set to obtain their IP automatically make a connection to the router, they're never given an IP address. Tried with multiple devices with the same result on all of 'em--it sits and waits, then times out and assigns itself a 169.x.x.x IP. To my knowledge, this particular router has never wanted to work with DHCP, it's just never been a problem up until now.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks -- resetting the router worked. It looks like I set the DHCP range from 100 to 150 when I first set up the router, and it didn't like that. After resetting the router, the range was from 2 to 254, and I reduced that from 2 to 10 and everything works fine.
Your help was much appreciated!
