I have DSL modem. I have set the IP address manually and working fine. There is no issue with this. But I want this to detect IP automatically via DHCP. I want to troubleshoot this issue. Please help. Thanks.

✔ Best Answer
the isp has to provide you with a dhcp ip. does not appear that they do. did they give you this static ip?

Richard59 you may wish to review the OP's question and answers.

"then DHCP is provided by your ISP and you do not need the service running in XP."

If assigned static the isp will not provide dhcp
You have to have the dhcp client service running to get a dhcp ip
