 Subject:  DHCP/ARP problem

When I set the WAN interface to DHCP, the system log returns this:

Jan 1 20:55:15	/kernel: arplookup failed: host is 
not on 
local network	 Jan 1 20:55:15	/kernel: arpresolve: can't allocate 
llinfo for 

The WAN interface *HAS* to be assigned by DHCP, even though I have a 
static Internet IP. (It's from a rubbish ADSL router set to half-bridge 
mode). I have never had any problems in Windows or Linux (It's been 
working like that with Smoothwall, and is working right now to a 
Windows machine), but this is my first experience of a BSD system. 

Any help or suggestions on this would be most appreciated.
