NOTE: This article applies to the mAX W21, W121, W122 Express, W30, W130, W31, W133, W61, and the W161 Routers.

The DHCP lease time is the amount of time that the mAX router retains the IP address for the client devices in the network.  If mAX router does not see the client device in the network before the DHCP lease time expires, the IP address is released and available for other client devices to use.  This document describes how to change the DHCP lease time in the mAX router.
