Refreshing LAN IP?
« on: May 12, 2018, 06:26:05 PM »

I know this is a really newb question but, what is the command to refresh a lan ip?

My computer has a lan ip assigned from the dhcp on the router. But how do I release it and have the router assign another lan ip to the computer? I know I could just reboot the computer. But I'm sure there must be a command I can type that will refresh the ip so I don't need to reboot each time?

What sotonsam said. Thatís what I use. Might want to flush an arp cache somewhere too.

By the way, you can put the commands on the same line if you place an & between each one.
