What does that mean?  It's only going to have one lease at a time.

If you use DHCP you really need have it set up with a static address.

One thing is make sure to upgrade the firmware.  I have the same model 
and before I updated the firmware it would hang after 1-2 days.  I'm not 
sure about it now but it might be staying up for 1-2 weeks.  It might 
not be hanging up, I haven't checked it out thoroughly yet.

I can't recall if I've ever accessed this camera from Fedora.  I can 
access it from Mac OS, Debian, UBuntu and WinXP.
