Error in Sytem Event Viewer

Ever since I installed a Linksys BEFSX41 router/firewall unit, I've notice an
error in the System Event Viewer with this information:

The IP address lease 192.168.2.100 for the Network Card with network address
00184DE9390C has been denied by the DHCP server 192.168.2.1 (The DHCP Server
sent a DHCPNACK message).

What needs to be done to get rid of this error? Every entry with DCHP has
this error.

Without knowing how you setup the router, I'd reset it to factory
defaults and start from scratch.

F.Y.I. Well, my problem has been solved and I wanted to post some feedback
here for whom ever is interested. The Linksys tech support made me change
the IP address of the router to 10.10.10.1 as oppose to 192.168.2.1 His
reasoning was that the original IP address was too close to my modem IP
address of 192.168.1.1 and causing some kind of cross mis reads or something
like that. The 10.10.10.1 is a sub for the other one. Thought you guys want
to know. Thanks Bowman for your reply.

sounds like your broadband modem is also a DHCP server/NAT device.
double NAT is not the optimum network configuration.
