IP renew / release

IP renew / release

(OP)
Hello,

cant currently connect one of my devices , it's trying to acquiring IP address but only gives me limited or no connectivity.
Trying to find that dos command for release/renew IP address to see if it works with that option.

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks

RE: IP renew / release


DOS commands for XP and higher is ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew. Release first, then renew. The /renew must be run as an administrator or as a regular account running the command as an administrator.

Hope this helps.
