Can't connect using DHCP

Q: Can't connect using DHCP

I can't figure out why i can't get a connection using DHCP (obtain ip address automatically). The only way i get an internet connection is by assigning a static ip. i have another pc connected to the network also windows 7 and dhcp works fine. i'm confused, can anyone help?

Preferred Solution: Can't connect using DHCP

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can't connect using DHCP

I would try this simple idea first and see what happens: click start, programs, accessories, then right click on command prompt and select run as administrator; once there; type ipconfig /release then wait till the adapter releases; then type ipconfig /renew and hopefully that will resolve the issue. If that does nothing for ya post back

Greetings,
I have 2 XP machines on a home network. One has a Static IP and the other get itís from the router DHCP.
My Question is how can I share files and songs on the network. I am having trouble having the 2 see each other. It seemed pretty much cut and dry.
Did I miss anything?

Thanks
ROB
 

A:Static and DHCP try to connect

Did you enable NETBIOS over TCP/IP on the one with the static IP address? Can you PING each machine from the other by IP address and by name?

For each computer, let's see this.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I just got Cox cable and it hasn't been working right.

I have a netgear WG602 wireless access point. I can connect to it but it has limited or no connectivity. Repairing the connection doesn't work and doesn't give me an IP.

I connected the ethernet cable directly to my laptop and it didn't work at all. I called them and it worked by directly connecting, but the wireless still didn't work.

Then I messed with wireless settings to try to connect, and I finally got online but my ip is 70.x.x.x, the apparent IP for all Cox subscribers.

But I got that 70.x.x.x through my router instead of a 192.x.x.x so I have no idea why it's doing that. It's really weird and I still can't get a dynamic IP.

Thanks for the help.

I've got a pc (XP Pro) that I cannot get to connect to the internet.
I've set the network connection properties to get an ip address automatically but it keeps geting the default (I think or something else)...
I've tried setting it to a specific address in my network range and still notable to connect.

I've run all the latest updates for adaware, cwshedder, ewido, trying kaspersky now.

I've also run lspfix, and winsockfix but nothing.
The only thin that bothers me is in the Status window - its says Autmatic Private Addressing .. I was expecting to see address "Address assigend by DHCP"
This is a dial up pc which I've just added to my network to trouble shoot other things.

I am running windows xp on a dell inspiron 4150 with a built in wireless card. My wireless was working fine until windows prompted me to reboot due to windows update. It stopped working after that. It is telling me that no ip address can be found and when I ipconfiged it with renew and all it still could not find it. It gave me an error message that says cannot connect to DHCP server.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you,
 

A:Network could not connect to DHCP server

Nothing really comes to mind, but if you're using Window's Wireless Zero Configuration maybe you need to reconfigure your wireless connection; especially if your network is protected with encryption.

I use the utilities from my wireless cards' manufacturers to connect to my WPA protectecd network and had no trouble today after the same reboot (two notebooks). Well, same reboot if you're talking about the critical update released yesterday.

I got a new desktop loaded with Microsoft Vista.

When I couldn't connect to my router (at home) I tried ipconfig /renew /reliease commands and got the following message:

"Unable to contact your DHCP server".

I brought my PC to work and it connected fine to the network there.

At home I use the modem/router provided by Verizon (FIOS). I tried several ethernet cables - so I am pretty sure it is not the cable.

BTW, other pc's at home are connected to the router, so the router is OK.

Any help is appreciated.

Check the setting on your Router which served as your DHCP as well. Make sure that the Router provides enough IP addresses for your home network.

Working on Win7 Pro x64 for years with same network settings - gigabit wired IPv4, fixed IP, fixed DNS, etc. Lot of other comps, network printers, APs - everything works fine. Suddenly last week my machine (only one) refused to connect - sometimes with yellow exclamation triangle on network icon, sometimes w/o it. But even if it tells "connected to internet" it does not connect to anything, even gateway. Few times it was resolved by reconnecting network cable. Trying various solutions without success. Then I noticed, that changing IP settings to DHCP solves problem - connection is back. Reverting to old fixed IP "disables" connection. I didn't install any new hardware or soft, only periodical software updates. Restoring system from "working" image made nothing. Have no idea - what's going on? Any way to fix or check what is a cause?

A:Can't connect with fixed IP, only DHCP works

As strange as it may sound, some Access Points (AP/router combo) will not allow devices with static IP addresses to connect* if the IP address of the device is outside of the DHCP range. They claim it is a security feature. The AP/router can tie the IP address to a MAC address - thus making it like a static IP assignment - but within the DHCP range. That IP won't be assigned to any other device.

*connect can mean different things. The computer is in the router's list of connected devices, but the computer is not allowed to connect to the internet or any local network assets.
I mention the above info so that I can ask if the firmware in the network device handling DHCP might have automatically updated and started enforcing that type of "security". Or, perhaps the DHCP range got changed and this one computer is now outside of the DHCP range.

Also, what happens if you assign the problematic computer a different static IP address?

If you ran the program it would be best to do a System Restore to just before it did its "fixes."

Disable encryption on the router and make sure MAC Address filtering is disabled and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Do you have a non-Windows firewall with separate settings for wired and wireless?

Hi all, first time posting here and hoping someone can help me out!

As the title implies, I am having trouble connecting to the internet, but not my network, when I assign a static IP to my machine. However, when it's set to DHCP, it works just fine.

Pertinent info:

-Service is Time Warner Roadrunner cable;
-There is no IP conflict as I've got DHCP range set from .200-.249 and this machine's static is .100;
-All the other devices in the house are on static starting with .101 up and they all work fine, both wired and wirelessly;
-Can see and connect to all devices in the LAN, including the router, but nothing outside

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... thanks!

Okay, so I've been using my laptop online for about 2 years with no problems at all (Vista OS). Then one day I go to sign on and it doesn't "find" the network it has used for years. I fiddled around with the router, got a new encryption key and somehow it worked - for a short time. Now, nothing at all pertaining to the internet - only available to connect to a "local" network. I can access the internet when I use an ethernet cable only. Our desktop, iPod Touch and Mac have no problem connecting. The laptop and wireless printer are not picking anything up. From most that I have read it seems I should have a DHCP enabled - it says NO and I don't know how to fix it - I get error messages stating:

Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server

With absolutely no information about the environment, it's really hard to answer.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

Hey all,

I have a simple network at home using winxp pro on both comps. I wish to use simple file sharing but am unable to do so. I have automatically configured IP addresses for both comps, and am able to ping using these ip addresses but cannot ping by comp name. both comps have addresses starting with 169.254.x.x indicating that the dhcp cannot issue a proper address, however when trying to release and/or renew the computer says that it has timed out before the request can be completed.

I have tried uninstalling the devices, rebooting and then reinstalling but the wizard falls short at the end claiming an error has occured.

Hello, i was not exactly sure where i am supposed to post this question so if this isnt the right place i will delete this and repost where you tell me too, here is the problem.

I have a computer on a school network, i recently set up a WDS server to make rebuilding computers allot easier and faster. I created an image for a Inspiron Desktop 560ST but when i tried to redeploy the image back on the exact same computer while connecting to WDS deployment service i get this error.

I have a T1 backbone connected to a Linksys wireless 4 port N router running 2 hubs and 1 websmart POE switch. I need to bring in another network on the same T1 backbone, keeping it separated from my current network with it's own DHCP router. I'm thinking I need to go from the T1 to a hub uplink port, then out to the ethernet port on both routers. Keeping the current setting on #1 router 192.168.1.1 and assigning an IP to the #2 Linksys router 192.168.2.1. I'm not sure if this will work, but it seems right, right?
 

A:How do I connect T1 to two DHCP routers, setup two networks

Thanks Rick

Thanks for your input Rick.
Currently I do have the T1 in the WAN port of my Linksys wireless router. This is my network DHCP server and has been working great. We have a school moving into my church building and I'm trying to provide them with their own LAN and internet. I'm not going to spend the cash for VLAN stuff, not cost effective. So I guess I'll just have to give them a router with static IP routing and their IT guy will have to assign IP's to each of their machines. My Linksys router is managing about 20 user stations and 5/8 wireless each day. This leaves me about 20 IP avail for my network. I could easly manage the school's needs without another DHCP router, but I don't want them to see my shared folders on my network. The static solution is the only one I can think of. Plus I don't want to use up my IP's.

I've been trying for so long to connect internet to my laptop. After using the ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew, it said "An error occured while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out". I am connecting with the cable directly from the modem. When I plug the cable inside my newer laptop, I have no problem connecting to the internet. My laptop that needs its ip address renewed has been turned off for around 2 years. So I'm guessing it may be considered a new connection by the DHCP server?

TCP/IP Properties "Obtain an IP address & Obtain DNS server address are already set to automatic. When I click on advanced it said DHCP is enabled.

When I look on Add/Remove Windows Components, the DHCP option isn't there.

The laptop is an HP ze4400 and the system is Microsoft Windows XP Version 2002. I'm using Comcast internet with an Arris modem. (Not sure if you really needed that info, but just to make sure.)

I'm not good at computer stuff, so please bare with me and give me a step-by-step example into solving this problem.

Hello,
I have a broadband connection with Tiscali (UK) via a USB ADSL WAN adaptor modem. I have had over months now terrible problems with the connection dropping out. Sometimes it will stay up for a day, sometimes it's dropping every hour or so. Very annoying. What's more annoying is that it will not automatically reconnect. If you set it to redial automatically you get a no dial tone error message and you are forced to reboot to get the connection back up. If you leave it for more than an hour, then try to reconnect it usually will. This is not an automatically always on connection from the moment you turn your machine on, you have to manually open the connection. XP classes it as a dial up connection really with ADSL settings.

I've done everything Tiscali has suggested, all the obvious stuff (RJ11 cabling all the way to the modem instead of phone extension cable part of the way etc. etc.), but this is doing my head in now. Good and proper.

So, I've acquired a Netgear DG834G V2 router in the hope that I can get an always-on connection and if this doesn't solve the problem completely, at least if the connection drops out for whatever reason, when the connection comes back it will be resume automatically, so if I'm downloading or whatever it will just carry on.

But I've hit an immediate problem. I've already been using it as my network hub without any problems for a few weeks. But when I tried to go to http://192.168.0.1 as mentioned... Read more

A:Can't connect to Netgear DG834G router to configure for DHCP

eVILRigby said:

...
My machine's address is 192.168.0.1 but I even reset the TCP/IP stack to see if it would resolve the problem and it didn't.
...
Click to expand...

So does that mean you have the IP of the "machine" (your PC??) manually set to 192.16.8.0.1? You need to change that (on the PC) to either be any IP addr, other than 192.168.0.1, in the same subnet or set the PC to automatically get IP from the router.
The DG834G factory setting should be DHCP server by default.

A:Can't connect to Internet DHCP and renewing IP address issue

Are you using broadband? Wired or wireless?
If you're using a router and you know its IP address you can try manually giving an IP address to your PC but it has to be in the same range as your router. That is if your router's IP is 192.168.1.1 then you'll have to specify something like 192.168.1.2 to your PC.

You may want to try taking a look here too.

The system restore is simple. I start it up, it runs, I log back in, and then I get a message without any error codes that it could not be compleated, and that no changes were made. When checking what is affected (since, when attempting a system restore, I get a message that says "Changes made to drive(s) E: after this point cannot be reversed because the drive was either excluded from System Restore monitoring, or was turned off or removed"

In any of the lists I find, it seems system restore only affects C: anyways.

I have a feeling that if I turn the restore points off then on, therefore reseting them, or create custome restore points, it would be fine, but I also have a feeling that a good system restore would fix my other, more complex problem. And if I can do a system restore in the end and fix this, I need those old restore points.

(Also, I have attempted system restore from various points from both normal and safe mode, and at no point was there a change in what happened.)

Please provide more information in regards to what operating system you are using and the make/model of your PC. In addition, using TSG's Information Utility will be beneficial to us. Run the tool and provide the output in your next post.

Based off your commands, I'm assuming you're running Windows.
1. Hit the Windows key on your keyboard
2. Type cmd and hit Enter on your keyboard
3. In the black box that appears, type ipconfig /all > %userprofile%\desktop\ipcfg.txt and hit Enter

What this will do is create a text file on your desktop that includes all your configurations in regards to your network interfaces. Please copy the contents of that file and place them into your next message.

Also, please provide more information in regards to your setup.
1. Are you connecting wirelessly or with a cable?

Once the wireless stabilize which is around 15 minutes it can reach back to normal speed.


I went into the event viewer and noticed the laptop has this warning message + error message

Another message:Router Advertisement settings have been changed on the network adapter 13. The current M - Managed Address Configuration flag is false and the O - Other Stateful Configuration flag is false. User Action: If you are seeing this event frequently, then it could be due to frequent change in M and O flag settings on the router in the network.

Last weekend, my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop suddenly couldn't connect to the internet. I looked around every corner of the computer, checking to see if anything was corrupted/broken, and I found that the DHCP Client Service and DNS Client Service cannot start (Error 1608, the dependency service or group failed to start). The DHCP Client depends on AFD. NetBios over Tcpip (already started, so that's a green), and TCP/IP Protocol Driver. However, I cannot find the AFD service anywhere in Services, and the TCP/IP Protocol driver has a yellow exclamation mark next to it, same with the IP Network Address Translator driver. Their device status is Code 24 (This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.), and when I try to start the IP Translator driver, it says "The system encountered the following error while attempting to start the service - The dependency service or group failed to start.". The TCP/IP driver gives me a slightly different error, "The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion". Going back to regedit and looking in the Tcpip folder, the DependOnService data says IPSec. There's no IPSec folder in regedit, anywhere!

Greetings,
  I have several windows 8.1 machines connected to a private network.  The clients all obtain their first DHCP leases correctly and work well for a time. At some point after having been running for awhile, they get into a state where they start
ignoring the DHCP ACK messages from the DHCP server when they attempt to renew their leases (see attached pcap file).  They go on ignoring the responses to their DHCP Requests until they lose their IP addresses and then send a DHCP Discover and receive
a DHCP Offer.  At this point, they seem to accept their new address and move on until it is time to renew again, at which point they start ignoring their DHCP ACKs again and the cycle continues.  These machines will work for hours with no problems
whatsoever, but they all seem to experience this issue at some point every day.  When they get into the state where they are ignoring their DHCP acks, they will stay that way until they are rebooted.  Disabling and then re-enabling the adapter does
not seem to fix the issue.
 Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?  I'm pretty stumped at this point.

Thank you,
  Jason

I'm running a simple network at home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router. I have two computers hooked up wired and a wireless router acting like an access point that I use for my laptop occasionally. Until this weekend I've been having no problems but I shut down the computers due to weather and now one of them is not able to communicate with any others on the network. The problem computer will get an address supplied to it by the router (DHCP server) but once it has it I cannot get any other connectivity. Of course this is hindering internet access on this computer. I can ping the loopback and assigned IP addresses w/o problems but when I ping the default gateway (router) and/or the other computer I get "Request timed out." I initially thought it was the NIC so I bought another one but still get the same issue. I've moved the cards to different PCI slots but no luck. I tested the cable running from the computer and the router but found no problems. I even tried resetting the TCP/IP stack but still didn't work. The computer in question is running WinXP SP2 with the original NIC being a Linksys LNE100TX and the new one being a D-Link DFE-530TX+.

Any clues on this? If more info is needed let me know--it's been a while since I've posted. Thanks in advance.

Okay, I got a new client a few weeks ago. What a mess...anyway, they had bought a new Dell with SBS 2K3 on it, and for some reason they have a wired firewall (Linksys), a wireless router (Linksys) and a small switch. After examining the setup of the network, I found the wireless router giving out IP addresses in the 192.168.1.X range, the SBS being what it is, was going to be the DNS/DHCP/DC, on and on, etc. I turned off the DHCP on the wireless router. Yesterday they called and had a machine that I wasn't aware of that couldn't connect, it's a proprietary machine for X-Rays, and all I could do was really look at it, and do a few things, like change the IP if needed, but it's set to DHCP, and it's getting 192.168.1.X addressing, when umm, it can't be. I did ipconfig /release then /renew, nothing, still the old address, with 192.168.1.1 as the DCHP and gateway. I statically set it to the 192.168.0.X settings and nothing, can't ping in or out or see the network. I set it back to DCHP reboot, and it still gets 192.168.1.X address, but there is no DHCP server serving up these address, so ummm, anyone? Oh, the X-Ray comp is plugged directly into the firewall now wich is on the 192.168.0.X network on the inside.......

My WinXP Home PC won't connect properly (limited connectivity/no internet) via ethernet cable to my router (Belkin N150).

Ipconfig /all shows the IP address as 169.254.117.71 but this is determined by an entry in the registry at HLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{39A...} > 'DhcpIPAddress' - REG_SZ - 169.254.117.71. Also listed at 'IPAutoconfigurationAddress'. My laptop connects fine plugged into the same port getting it's IP automatically (192.168.2.2) and getting internet fine.

After much searching I can't figure out what's wrong.

I've tried adding a DWORD entry 'IPAutoconfigurationEnabled' = 0, also tried deleting the 2 values.
Tried setting the IP manually to 192.168.2.6 - limited connectivity goes away but I get no internet connection from the router nor file sharing.

Any help please?

QUESTION #1:
Is it better to use Win2000 Server DHCP or DHCP from my Netgear wireless router?

#1 BACKGROUND:
I am currently in the process of setting up a Win2000 server on my home network which consists of four other 2000/XP machines.
The server is going to be configured as a domain controller and will utilize the Active Directory.

Should I use the Win2000 Server DHCP or stick with my wireless router as the DHCP server? What are the advantages/disadvantages to both and which would be easier to maintain.

QUESTION #2
Is a 550mhz PIII with 256MB RAM fast enough to make a good home server running Win2000 server?

BACKGROUND #2
The server is going to have (2) 120GB Western Digital 7200rpm drives with 8MB cache for storage and a single 60GB Western Digital 7200rpm drive for the OS and few other applications.

The server's primary function is to serve as a media server with an approaching 10GB of MP3 and music video files which is continually going to grow. Disk contention is at a minimum since there are only four PC's on the network. There will also be a lot of digital photos stored on the server and will also serve as a place to perform backups from the other four networked PC's.
 

A:Win2000 Server DHCP or Router DHCP?

We have a similar setup in our office using Small Business Server, a public IP coming into our router with DHCP turned on, connected to a NIC in the internal DHCP server (which is also running ISA). A second NIC in the server bridges to the internal hub to provide DHCP services to the clients. This way we control port filtering in 2 places and with 2 levels of NAT taking place we feel secure. It may be overkill but we're concerned that EVERYONE is trying to hack into ISA and DHCP servers connected directly to public IP that this setup provides an added level of security.

Hi,
My old hard disk was dead so bought a new hard disk drive of 500gb, when i tried to install windows xp on the new hard disk the cd didn't boot as it used to do first, it gives out an error during boot "PXE-E51: No DHCP or proxy DHCP offers were received please enter bootable device and press any key". Thanks in advance.

A:PXE-E51: No DHCP or proxy DHCP offers were received

Any message such as this referencing 'PXE" are likely indications that you need to adjust the boot device settings in the BIOS.  The message indicates that the system is currently trying to boot via network, rather than boot to an optical drive or a hard drive.
 
If you want to boot from a CD to install XP, then the first boot option in the BIOS must be changed to an optical drive.
 
If you want to boot from the hard drive, then the first boot device should be changed to reflect the hard drive as the first option.
 
What makes you think that your old hard drive was dead?
 
These PXE errors are often the result of the fact that the CMOS battery is dying or is dead and needs to be replaced.  Since this is a vital but cheap item easily obtained, this is not a serious problem.
