Check your DHCP server

If your device is still not able to obtain an IP address, it could be due to an issue with the DHCP server. Check the DHCP server to ensure that it is running correctly and has available IP addresses to assign to devices.

Manually assign an IP address

If all else fails, you can manually assign an IP address to your device. Choose an IP address that is within the range of your network, but not in use by any other devices. To manually assign an IP address, go to the network adapter settings in your device, select "Use the following IP address," and enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
