DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) simply gives a device an IP address, a gateway to the Internet, and sutable DNS servers.

This is given for the lease period which is one day. After that time, the address is released back into the pool, for re-allocation.

If the box on the devices list that says "always use this address", then the lease is infinite.

 

DHCP simplifies the connection process for roaming devices, but does not offer any benefits to devices which never leave you house.

 

In the case of your laptop, its more likely that its wireless card is upsetting the hub due to some incompatibility, especially if the problem started when you bought it. There may be some driver updates for it. If not then you may have to add an additional wireless point, or use a different router.

Go to the "support" section of the manufacturer of your laptop website, and look for updated wireless drivers.
