Something happened with my ethernet internet. I couldn't connect. Then it solved itself, but there's one thing:

I don't remember that it was there... what will happen when the lease expires? obtain means when the computer was turned on... every time I reboot, the obtain time will change...

So, is it normal? what will happen when the lease expires?


Please, help!

Hello welcome to GeeksToGo

My name is Cbarnard. I will try to answer your question for you

This problem you are seeing is not a problem at all.

Every time you connect to the net you are given an IP address "on lease"

Lets use for example you have a wireless router that can handle 50 users

Each user when they connect receive a lease on an IP address, the router assigns the address to them for the specified period of time. When the time runs out when the connect again they are reissued a new address Typically the IP address will start at 192.168.1.1, The next address it issues will be 192.168.1.2 and so on.

I hope this has helped you If you have anymore questions I would love to help you with them.

Good luck

Cbarnard
