What has happened is the dhcp ip address lease time as ran out, you should go into the routers settings (type in your web browser) and change the lease length, it should be set as infinite or the longest you can set it to. If unable to get into the router there should be a reset button.

How do I get tcp/ip address from ISP provider (BigPond)

Normally TCP/IP addresses are allocated using DHCP by the provider to the router. The router will have a private address range, which will be given to a local network by its own TCP/IP.

Windows XP: How to release and renew IP addresses

IP addresses can either be assigned manually or automatically. When they are assigned automatically, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server hands them out and determines which computer or other device gets which address. This process usually flows smoothly, but there are times when you may need to release or renew an IP address even when using DHCP.

There are several ways to release and renew IP addresses in Windows XP. Each procedure is described below.

From the system notification tray:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Repair. Windows will automatically release the current IP address, reset the network connection, and request an IP address from the DHCP server. (The new IP address that gets assigned may be a different one from before, or it may be the same one.)

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Right click on My Network Places.
3. Select Properties.
4. Right click on the network connection that is currently in use.
5. Select Repair. (If you choose a network connection that is not in use, Repair will be grayed out.)

For either of the above methods, you can release and renew your IP address manually by clicking Disable instead of Repair, and then right-clicking and choosing Enable.

From the command prompt:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Click Run.
3. Type "cmd" and press [Enter].
4. At the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and press [Enter].
5. Type "ipconfig /renew" and press [Enter].
6. Type "exit" and press [Enter].

My ip address cant be renewed

Most likley one of these two.
  • DHCP isn't working on the router or device
  • Another device has the same IP
  • You have the device set to a static IP inside your DHCP range

Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /release
Wait about 6 minutes (typical leasing time is 5 minutes)
Type ipconfig /renew
If it still isin't working
Go into Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Network adapter on the left. Right click whichever adapter you are using (wired or wireless) select properties

Look for Internet Protocol v4 and select it and click properties.
IP address and DNS should both be on Obtain Auto.

to "renew" your "lease" from the local DHCP-server.

Hi, I have at&t DSL using a westell modem and set up a wireless network using a D-link gamer lounge router. It seems to work most of the time but occassionally develops an IP conflict with my wife's...

For any network, you should have one DHCP server. If you try and have more than one DHCP server, it may still work if you have non-overlapping assigned ranges. Also, it sounds like you have more than one network - the network between your westell an your D-Link and between your D0Link and its clients. My belief is that both of those devices can run DHCP servers, firewalls, NAT and so forth, and if the laptop gets multiple responses it can use the wrong one.
One thing that you could do to make things simpler is to put your westell in bridge mode and that will insure you have only one DHCP server, NAT, etc - the one on your DGL-4300.
By "Entire system", do you mean the laptop?
Chances are you can tell windows to "repair" the adapter and it will (given encouragement) disable and reenable the adapter, renew the IP address and so forth. There are command line tools as well, open a cmd and type
ipconfig /renew
to get a new ip address and avoid the reboot.

No internet connection,


if you have already configure your router and it was working following thing could have happen

1) you have lost connection to internet ...go to your router setup page under status make sure you have connection

2) once you have your router connected re-boot your laptop or pc or renew your wirless connection

good luck

Internet connection fails very frequently!

I will try to see if I can Be of some help...But first I need to know who your ISP is. Also I note that you indicated that you try to renew and release you do not show DHCP connected. You should be doing release and then renew, I believe that's what you meant to say? Also please describe to me how you attempted to set up static IP.
Awaiting your info...!

Static DHCP

Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Step 2 Click on the Home tab and then click DHCP on the left column. Step 3 Under the Static DHCP section next to DHCP Client, select one of the DHCP clients from the list and click Clone. Step 4 Select Enabled and enter the IP address you would like this client to always obtain. Step 5 Verify that the Name and MAC Address fields have the correct Hostname and MAC address for the client and click Apply. If the Hostname or MAC address is not correct, Release and Renew the IP address on the client and then refresh the DHCP page.
