    I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 laptop with Windows 11 and is all up to date. I was running commands in Powershell 7 ran as admin for a class assignment and one was to run ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew, however, renew did not work and is saying my media is disconnected. Troubleshooting I have already done is:Updating Windows and laptopReset the routerRan Network Adapter troubleshooter and it came back with no issuesReset Winsock catalog commands in Command Prompt ran as admin and restarting deviceRestarting deviceDisabling and enabling network adapters through command in Powers

    Cannot ipconfig /renew

    Whenever I try to ipconfig /renew (after ipconfig /release), it takes a long time and then it says that "An error occurred while renewing interface Npcap Loopback Adapter: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has been timed out" Any suggestions
    on how to fix this?

  3. Ran the command "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew" but renew will not work and says media is disconnected. How do I fix this?

    I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 laptop with Windows 11 and is all up to date. I was running commands in Powershell 7 (ran as admin) for a class assignment and one was to run ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew, however, renew did not work and is saying my media is disconnected. Troubleshooting I have already done is:

    • Updating Windows and laptop
    • Reset the router
    • Ran Network Adapter troubleshooter and it came back with no issues
    • Reset Winsock catalog commands in Command Prompt (ran as admin) and restarting device
    • Restarting device
    • Disabling and enabling network adapters through command in Powershell 7 (ran as admin)
    • ipconfig /flushdns

    This is what it looks like in Powershell 7 (screenshot would not upload):

    PS C:\Windows\System32> ipconfig /renew
