Well... yes.

I've seen WinXPSP2 Intel 3945ABG WLAN drivers die out of the blue,
I've seen such machines lose connectivity, with and without DHCP server
hiccups, I've seen DHCP servers do outright stupid things (For instance,
Microsoftish DHCP servers can act *very* strangely - ever manually
configured your very own fixed IP statically in the client? The DHCP
server will lock out the IP, and once you're back to DHCP, they will
offer you your own IP, and once you request it, refuse it. Why do they
offer it in the first place? Manual intervention on the server needed to
clear the issue...)

Ah ok.

Right, now that you mention that, I remember we've discussed this
