I maked an attempt serveral by "ipconfig /renew" but I didn't response from Dhcp server.

So, I tried PC rebooting finally then I recived IP address from Dhcp server.

I don't know what problem is.

I often experience this things.

So, I checked up my Dchcp server but I'm not found some problems.

I useing Fedora core Linux Program on Dhcp server.

Re: About DHCP Sever.

Oops, I am familiar on Nortel & Extreme. You may need to configure the DHCP relay agent in the switch. Try to check the manual or Nortel support for details.

Sorry can't help.
