DHCP Warning in Modem Log

[ Edited ]
Hi,
 
I discovered the following error message in my SB5101 modem log:
 
DHCP WARNING - Non-critical field invalid in response.
DHCP RENEW WARNING - Field invalid in response
 
What does this mean exactly?
 
Thank you!

Re: DHCP Warning in Modem Log

It means that one of the fields in the DHCP response was invalid.  The modem uses DHCP to get an IP address from Comcast, and there's some minor problem with part of the response.  I don't know which field it is or what's wrong with it, but it's essentially benign, it happens with many modems, I have the same thing here.  It doesn't cause a problem that I can see so you can safely ignore it.

Thank you, Baric!  I was wondering whether it was affecting my connection or not, but it appears that it does not...good to hear that!
