Please post an unedited ipconfig /all of both working (dhcp) and non-working (static) configuration.




Follow these steps to enable DHCP for Wi-Fi in Windows 10.

  • Open the ‘Power User’ menu by pressing Windows key + X on the keyboard
  • From options, select ‘Network Connections’
  • At least two types of network connections are displayed – Wi-Fi and Ethernet
  • Double-click on the active network connection
  • ‘Network Connection Status’ window displays ‘Properties.’ Click on it
  • Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 or Version 6 and click on Properties again

Now, for enabling DHCP, select both – ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’ and ‘Obtain DNS server address automatically.’
