    • To verify a DHCP client lease, type ipconfig to view lease-status information.

      Or, type ipconfig /all.

    • To release a DHCP client lease, type ipconfig /release.

    • To renew a DHCP client lease, type ipconfig /renew.

Note

  • To open a command prompt, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command prompt.
