I am currently networking 4 computers through a dsl/cable router and we have gotten 3 setup correctly, the 4th will not. it is set up exactly the same as the other three, but when we use winipcfg to try and renew the address it replys "DCHP server unavailable: renewing adapter "" " we've tried connecting to both the router and straight through the cable modem with no success, any thoughts would be helpful.

thanks
taylor

did you check the network settings in network neighborhood? are the TCP/IP properties configured properly for your NIC? Removing and re-installing the NIC driver may do the trick too.

To clear up what p5mmx10g said, if using a hub, the last 'regular' port is almost always shared with the uplink port. So if the uplink port is in use, the last one becomes unusable.

Did you specify an IP address in the tcp/ip?
Don't know if you can release and renew if you have a static IP there?
