Check for fixed address

This issue will come up when any machine on the network has been used for Internet Connection Sharing using the Windows ICS feature of WinXP.

Disable that and the problem may go away.

Alternatively look in Network Connection settings and verify that under TCP/IP properties the Obtain DNS and IP Address Automatically boxes are ticked.

My spouse turned off his network sharing and I don't have the problem any longer. Found you through a Google search.
