I have noticed that the only WIn 10 PC I have in a house keeps bugging my RT-86U with the same DHCP requests every minute.
I wonder if anyone has seen this before and what can I do with this? Running latest 20h2 version and configured network driver bot to go to sleep. That did not help. Any suggestions?

Give the Win10 PC a static IP and try DHCP again next year! :)

Yeah! It occurred to me that I should try it right after I posted the question. It worked.
