try this
start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig /all
the gateway would be your dhcp

you could also try to trace your route to a website. you would see your route to tha site and all the servers going through

thsteph, the gateway will only be your DHCP server if you are in a simple environment such as a home user with a router to the Internet.
MLtech, try this:
netsh dhcp show server
This assumes your DHCP Servers are Windows machines and you have Active Directory in your network.

correct cantoris; tracing the route though will go through all the hops won't it

in the meantime if he has multiple dhcp he would have a problem with netsh

cantorisCommented:
Trace a route to where?  Why?  Tracert has nothing to do with DHCP.
Netsh will show all DHCP Servers authorised in Active Directory in that domain - there is no issue with mutiple ones.

ok, let him post back a reply first and we'll discuss this if he continues having problems. even though I believe tracing the route to his ISP or any other website would show him all the servers going through till he reaches that IP (website). in the meantime MLtech try downloading from here. I hope this tool helps a bit : http://www.softpedia.com/get/Network-Tools/Network-IP-Scanner/DHCP-Find.shtml

Your statement about what Tracert does is correct but he doesn't need to see which servers are between him and a website at all!  He wants to know what IP his DHCP server is on.
This all said, the tool you have linked to will certainly give him the information he is looking for - if he's allowed to make use of a 3rd-party tool (which he didn't sound keen on)    :-)

:)
well, he said he's the only one that has access to the servers; can't find a reason he wouldn't like to use a 3rd party tool :S
either way, let him post back a reply and we'll c
take care
