DHCP servers in my experience tend to be somewhat flaky. You can cheat and set the IP it keeps giving you as a permanent IP. If you don’t use DHCP, you must also manually configure some DNS (Domain Name Service) server IPs. If anything goes wrong, revert to DHCP, reboot and pray the DHCP servers are up.
You can also clear its pea brain with:
When you have a router you can use static or DHCP IP assignment for for your computers to talk to the router and also for the router to talk to your IAP (Internet Access Provider).
IPCONFIG /release IPCONFIG /renew
You then have configure the DHCPs (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocols) in your various computers attached to the LAN (Local Area Network) and for the the DHCP in the router.
Your DNS servers may have the wrong IP or may not have the domain you want on file. If your ISP is not providing reliable DNS servers, or you suspect there is a problem with them you can try out some alternates. Of course, these alternates may fail too, so don’t forget how to put them back the way they were. Since your ISPs servers are physically close, they should provide the fastest service. To configure DNS servers, Click Control Panel ⇒ Network & Internet ⇒ Network Connections ⇒ right click Properties.
