Default NFS Server DNS Issue

Hi Everyone,

I have googled this to death and can't really find an answer to my issue, I was wondering if anyone could help out.

The situation is that I am remote booting two thin clients over NFS using FreeBSD 7.0. These are display computers and are often connected to erratic wireless internet. The issue is that operations over NFS are extremely slow/completely fail when the wireless internet connection fails. It is like the NFS server is doing a reverse DNS lookup every time a file is requested.

The exports line in question does not use hostnames and uses network only:
/data/misc -maproot=root -alldirs -network -mask

My question is, is it possible to tell freebsd's nfs server to completely stop using DNS?

Thanks in advanced for any help.
