  2. Right-click the interface you want to disable, and then click Disable.
  3. Right-click the interface again, and then click Enable.

Verify

To verify that an IP address is assigned:

  1. At the DHCP-enabled client computer, click Start, click Run, and then type cmd.
  2. Type ipconfig /all to view lease-status information.
  3. The output of the ipconfig command should show an IPv4 or IPv6 address marked "preferred."
