The DHCP Client service on your computer did not receive a response from the DHCP server to the DHCP Discover message within the time limit; therefore your computer’s IP address was assumed to be invalid, and the DHCP Client service generated another IP address.
If connection with the network is not established using this APIP address, the DHCP Client service will try to contact the DHCP server with a new IP address every five minutes as long as the APIP service is active.
The failure of the DHCP server to respond could be caused by network connectivity issues, DHCP server or DHCP relay malfunction, firewall issues, or a malfunction of your computer’s network interface card or driver.
If your computer is connected to the network by cable, confirm that the cable is plugged in. If you have a wireless network connection, confirm that you have a signal and the proper credentials for the wireless network.
The DHCP Client service will continue trying to obtain a working IP address until it succeeds. If the network connection is not established automatically, check the following possible causes and take corrective action:
