Recently my computer started disconnecting whenever the "Lease Expires" time is reached, i.e

Lease Obtained: Tuesday, 8 September 2009 5:20:59 p.m.
Lease Expires: Tuesday, 8 September 2009 5:25:59 p.m.

and when it reaches 5:25:59 p.m. my computer will disconnect from the internet for a fraction of a second. Now i realise that this process is entirely normal etc, but this has only just started occuring, and from looking at friends networks they all have lease times of an hour, or a day.
If anyone knows how to change the lease time, or something so it gets renewed before it expires I would appreciate it greatly.

Actually, there is something wrong there, since I've never seen or heard of a router that allows a lease time of five minutes. Also, if things are working normally, a lease is automatically renewed at 50% of the lease period, there should never be a disconnect for an active connection.

I'd start the debugging by resetting the router to factory defaults and reconfiguring for your environment.
