IPconfig /release and renew

Well lately ive been having a problem where my computer says there is an ip address conflict so I tried figuring out what the problem was but I only have one computer on this connection, so I couldnt but I found a temporary solution whenever I do the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew it seems to help... for about a day and then it starts again, so I was looking around some more and found out that doing ipconfig /release and renew expires after 24hours and I was wondering if there is a way to make it last longer... or just to fix the problem altogether
