Please go Control panel Admin Tools, Services and check on the DHCP Client service - the services that it depends on
That is click the dependencies tab, after you have double clicked to open the DHCP Client service.
One of them will be the auxilliary function driver
another MAY be on your computer the NetBios over TCP/IP
PLEASE CHECK and make a note of the dependencies on that service.
Also while you are in services check the TCP/IPNetBiosHelper service please, ensure it is set Automatic Start and then start it.
Now please go to Device Manager and
Check in Device Manager - on hidden devices.
on the view tab click to show hidden devices
Is there is any warning on the Auxilliary Function driver - Non plug and play devices.
See my screenshot please
double-click the entry AFD, and click the Driver tab Set the Startup type to System. Start the service. Note down the error message if any. Similarly start the two other drivers namely:
- TCP/IP Protocol Driver
- NetBios over Tcpip
- using the above as an example check each of these and/or as listed in your dependencies
- Close Device Manager and restart Windows.
Go back to services.
If the DHCP service is not started, set the start to automatic and then start it.
