Sorry, but the only thing that could have been changed is the firmware on the router. But why could it be on just to the thin clients?

One thing I have read about is that the thin clients do not respond to ping then they are in Stanby mode. They respond only to arp requests. Then the problem when Windows just uses the dhcp ping out to see if clients use the ip address that they have borrowed. If there is no answer, it parts it out to someone else and when the thin wakes so retains his old ip whithout checking with the server that it is ok.
