I am using an SMC 8Port Barricade Router as a DHCP server. Is this ok?

I was wondering if my Wireless Access Point configuration settings might have 
something to do with this. I have powersavingmode=off but powersleepmode=100 
is set and I'm wondering if this is the culprit. I havn't figured out how to 
reinitialize powersleepmode and I'm not sure if I should increase are 
decrease the setting.
