I am currently running MS Windows 2000 Professional with Verizon DSL.  During peak Internet hours 4-9 P.M.  I continually get booted off the internet.  I have been told that Verizon does not enough IP addresses for all its DSL customers therefore the problem.  With windows 98 I would simply use winipconfig and do a “release all” “renew all” and the problem would be solved.  How do I do this in Windows 2000.

You need to go to a command prompt by clicking on Start> Run> and type in CMD followed by clicking the OK button.

When the command prompt comes up, you would type in:
IPCONFIG /RELEASE

After that you would use the command:
IPCONFIG /RENEW

or type exactly the following:

IPCONFIG /RELEASE & IPCONFIG /RENEW

(It's the same thing but on one command line)

Thanks, I was unaware you could use boolean functions in command lines. Thanks leew!

DwarfBaby,
If you would like to, you can make a new shortcut on the desktop and use this as the command line. This may be easier for you in the future.

Far as I know you can only concantonate things using the ampersand.  I frequently use it when restarting a service from the command line.

If it's that frequent, create a little BAT file and stick it on your desktop.  Just double click and you're back in business.

Here is an easy batch file left at the command prompt so you can see the results. Then you can either type exit or x out. Paste into text file and name ip.bat

r


c:
cd\
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
C:
cmd

Sorry it took so long to get back to you guys.  Had a lot of problems with verizon.  My account would disconect about every ten minutes or so.  To make a long story short I am now with ATT Broadband due to Verizon's inability to fix their problem.
