    I have an HP laptop with built-in wireless and an IP Phone. I configured the
    laptop with a network bridge and used a crossover cable to the IP phone. I
    configured my wireless modem to promiscoius mode and it worked, the IP phone
    was able to get an IP address through the laptop. However, when I shut doen
    the phone and laptop for the evening and then turned it back on, I show the
    bridge connected, but the phone is not able to contact the dhcp server to get
    an IP address. What could have changed? I verified the modem was still
    setup correctly and the bridge is connected. Any ideas or configuration
    changes I need to make so that it comes back up?
    Thanks for your help
    Kathy
