DHCP (Dynamic Host Config Protocol) is a protocol that will automatically assign an i/p address (TCP/IP) for network connectivity. The other type is Static I/P which would have a "static" i/p address assigned. If you go to Start/run, type in cmd and then ipconfig /all to see if you are connected via DHCP or Static I/P. Some apps need a static i/p, and this can be accomplished if you edit the hosts file on c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc but you would need expert help with it.

No DHCP or proxt DHCP offered

If your computer is working fine then, disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, and is usually used to load an OS image.

For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.

DHCP installation problem

First of all, read this M$ article on setting up DHCP:

Secondly, check the following:
1. You have defined a valid scope and ACTIVATED it
2. You have AUTHORISED the DCHP server in Active Directory (see
3. Make sure that there are enough unused IPs in the address pool
Make sure that the DHCP server service is running - and check the EVENT LOG for errors
4. Make sure that there is no other, especially unauthorized, DHCP servers (i.e. router with DHCP enabled)

Actually the best article overall to review is, which gives a big picture view regarding the role of DHCP autorization and what can happen in a mixed environment

You can use the netsh command to configure Ip adresses.

1. IP via DHCP:
netsh set address name="MyLocalAreaConnection" source=dhcp

2. static IP:
netsh set address name="MyLocal AreaConnection" source=static addr= mask= gateway=

- no line breaks in the commands
- change names and numbers to your needs
- check on mistyping and spaces between the commands

Dhcp in server 2003 in domain not working

Windows 2003 server supports DHCP. If you don't see in Administrative tool DHCP maybe the DHCP role is not enabled. You can add this role in "Manage your server". You don't need to reinstall win 2003 server.
Another way to access DHCP management tool is: in command prompt type mmc and then File> "Add remove snap-in" then "Add" and select DHCP.
