DHCP Server Error – Different ways to troubleshoot

by | Jan 15, 2021

DHCP Server Error can occur due to configuration on the computer or device that allows a DHCP server to assign it an IP and also due to configuration of the DHCP server

Here at Bobcares, we have seen several such Windows-related errors as part of our Server Management Services for web hosts and online service providers.

Today we’ll take a look at the causes for this error and see the fix.


What does DHCP error mean?

A DHCP error means the server on your network that provides an IP address for devices is not able to assign your computer an IP address.

The DHCP setting can break the internet connection. Also, it can appear in various forms. But the end result is that you can’t access the internet.

Here are different causes for this DHCP error to occur.

1. Configuration on the computer or device that allows a DHCP server to assign it an IP.
2. Configuration of the DHCP server.

Generally, this error occurs when the DHCP server or router on a network cannot automatically adjust the device’s IP address to join the network. As a result, a network connection error while accessing the internet with a web browser.


How to Fix DHCP Server Error

Here are the steps our Support Engineers suggests to fix the DHCP errors.

1. Run the Windows Network Troubleshooter

This is the obvious troubleshooting step that we need to follow. Also, it is the easiest way to fix the internet connection issue. Here, we just need to let Windows automatically fix internet settings.

For that, we need to right-click on the network connection icon in the Windows taskbar and select ‘Troubleshoot problems’.

The network troubleshooter will automatically identify any settings that may cause an internet connection problem. If the DHCP settings caused the error, we select ‘Apply this fix; to apply any suggested changes.

2. Check the DHCP adapter settings

By default, the DHCP server or router on the network should automatically assign the computer an IP address. However, in some cases, this option can be disabled. So check the network adapter to ensure that it is enabled.

3. Check the DHCP router settings

On a home network, DHCP settings in the router manage the IP addresses of devices on the network. We suggest verifying that the DHCP beginning and ending addresses match the gateway address.
