When WPAD is enabled through both DNS and DHCP in a single AD environment, which one takes priority over the other? Is there a possible conflict to worry about?

DHCP has higher priority than DNS. If DHCP provides the URL no DNS lookup is performed.

If I understand your question correctly, DHCP is the most important protocol. Without DHCP you have no IP address, and without an IP address you can not make a DNS query or get proxy information from WPAD.

Thanks for your quick response. I've just activated the DHCP option for my network.
