The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network configuration protocol for hosts on Internet Protocol (IP) networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other hosts. The most essential information needed is an IP address, and a default route and routing prefix. DHCP eliminates the manual task by a network administrator. It also provides a central database of devices that are connected to the network and eliminates duplicate resource assignments.
If you see a DHCP error it means your router is not setting up your connection correctly. The first thing you should try is unplug your router from the power source for 1 minute. Plug it back in and try again. Your router may only keep track of a few sessions and all those sessions could be used by other devises. Unplugging the router will drop all those connections and allow your equipment to connect. If that is your issue you may want to set your router to allow more connections.
If you still have DHCP errors you should check to see if your router needs a factory firmware update to correct the issue.
If you still have DHCP errors you can eliminate DHCP by setting all your own configuration details.
