LAN DHCP request is forwarded to WAN

I have a 3COM OfficeConnect® Wireless 108 Mbps 11g

Cable/DSL Router (product code 3CRWER200-75) with

firmware version 1.3.06



I have a setup like this (connection order as listed)

1: ISP

2: Modem

3: 3COM router (WAN connected to Modem. LAN connected

to PC1 and PC2)

4: PC1 and PC2



When starting (powering on) the 3COM router while PC1

and PC2 are up and running, their DHCP request are

sent to my ISP throu WAN port.

(But when the router is finished starting up after 1

minute, the PC's DHCP requests are "catched" by the

router on the LAN side as they should)



Why does the router forward the DHCP requests to WAN

during startup? The DHCP request on LAN side should

never be forwarded to WAN.
