renew ip address
I've been running Slackware 9.1 on my laptop for the past few months without any problems, but just a couple of days ago it stopped getting an IP address from the DHCP server in our router.
I think I got an IP address from the DHCP at school a few days ago(10.196.65.123), and now my machine assumes that address at home.
I can ping the router (192.168.0.1)
I cannot get any access to the Internet.
I have tried "ifconfig eth0 up" and "ifconfig eth0 down" and it still does not renew the IP address.
How do I tell it to stop assuming the address I got from school and to take an address from the DHCP server that is in our router?
(again, this has all worked fine for months; my machine has been to school and back before and everything was fine, so none of this makes any sense to me)
