While I agree I haven't had any problems with m0n0wall using DHCP but
I'm only using it on a few workstations.  I am one of those that wish
that the DHCP lease times could be longer or configurable.  Is there a
reason why there are DHCP requests every 5 minutes?  I'm using the
CD-ROM image.

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?
