I'm going to answer no. For Windows 2000 and most broadband, DHCP will be just fine.
In closing, no clues were given or "error messages" about loading the ISP software. Also, beware if you don't have a Windows 2000 CD, this effort will likely fail.
ok. i have been given a computer which was being used on a network, with DHCP its got windows 2000 NT services pack 4. the computer was cleaned prior to me getting it. ok so...
when i turn the computer on i get the message:
DHCP client cant find IP Address. if you would like to see DHCP messages in furture click, yes if not no. (i click yes)
am i right in thinking i need to disable DHCP or Uninstall DHCP then i will be able to load up my 'broadband software' as it is not allowing me to, and i will be able to get online.
also if i dont uninstall DHCP can i could just manually configure an IP address for my computer, yes?
hope this makes sense to someone? any help would be good.
