Random question about dhcp...


I have a computer that is connected to a cable modem which then connects to the Internet. Now, since the cable modem is on, it gets assigned a public IP for a certain lease time. Once that lease time expires it gets a new IP or uses the same one. What determines this behavior? The dhcp client settings? or the dhcp server settings at the dhcp server that the cable modem talks to?

The dhcp server settings at the dhcp server that the cable modem talks to.

Kind regards
