Are you really sure that increasing the DHCP lease time will make the 
problem go away altogether and not just increase the time it takes for 
it to pop up? I've been running DHCP on my m0n0walls for months and 
never had any dropouts (with different kinds of equipment, Macintoshes, 
Windows PCs, *nix...). Does m0n0wall log anything suspicious, like DHCP 
related packets being blocked, or DHCP server error messages?
