PC generating multiple DHCP leases

By Sceva ·
I have a Dell Laptop running Windows 2000. It is obtaining its network address from a Netgear router/firewall. Whenever I restart this laptop, the firewall reserves 3 dhcp addresses, but the computer is only using one. I set it up for a static address in the tcp/ip properties and now I only get 2 dhcp addresses. Is there any other service on the computer that could be trying to register an address?

you've already checked this, right? you have an infrared nic, a ethernet nic and a wireless nic in there maybe?

I doesn't have any of those, but I did check other network settings, and found a bunch of dialup connections, and hidden amongst them was a couple of other connections - after deleting them the problem is gone. Looks like it was a vpn setup that is no longer used.
