okay so i have my dhcp setup to 192.168.10.5 to 192.168.10.99, the numbers from 100 onwards are static ip's
my issue is this, when i sometimes plug in a new computer using the dhcp part of this and not a static number i get 192.168.0.x for some strange reason, the only way to get a right number is to unhook the cable and reseat but that doesn't always work so i sometimes need to restart my network for it to go into the 192.168.10.x area.
i found this in the logs if it can tell anyone what the heck is going on.

this is on the day when it last happend, may 21'st
linux noob so take it easy, hopefully this doesn't have anything to do with that i changed network cards in the pc from 3 realtek to 3 3com's, the realteks gave me errors when transfering bigger loads but the 3com's don't, didn't reinstall the pc when i did this.
