Question [Help/Untested solution found] Router/Network problems

Hey All,

Posted this on other sites and hit a brick wall.

Running OSX 10.3.9 on both computers with Verizon DSL and connecting through DHCP. Well my imac is always connected to the ethernet cable and I log out and put it to sleep. With my powerbook what I do is log out, put it to sleep and disconnect the ethernet cable so I can put my powerbook away. What I noticed that started happening to my powerbook first is that sometimes I would have to reboot to have network access even though when I open up network on system preferences it says that it's active. This happened to me like 4 times on my powerbook and once on my imac. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I discovered the problem when I try to run firefox and was unable to connect or when Adium does not connect. Weird...TIA for any help.

Clarification April 26, 2005: Yesterday my desktop had the problem again. I restarted and I got my connection back. I didn't want to sit on this any longer cause it's frustrating. From another forum it said that I need to set up a static IP address. Apparently the IP range changes and screws up my computer's connection. I'm logging out and putting the computer to sleep each time and I guess it's a hit or miss when I log back in cause it doesn't happen to me each time. I found some further information about static ip's and how to set it up. It seems easy and I will try it tonight. Instead of just DHCP it should be manual DHCP and I should type in a different IP for each computer once I set up a static IP in the router. I'll see what happens.
