Using DHCP Client on Windows 2008
Posted on 2011-03-12
I am configuring a laptop to use when demoing software. The OS is Windows 2008 R2.
I need to use DHCP so that I can access the internet when I am at a client site. So I have set both the IP Address and DNS Server to automatic. However, I am unable to get an IP address.
I thought it was the Windows Firewall so I disabled it and rebooted. Same problem. The DHCP Client service starts properly.
The network shows as "unidentified network" and access type says "no network access".
Any ideas on getting Win 2008 to work with DHCP?
Thanks very much,
