Cannot get automatic IP address

Just set up PostOffice Broadband and had real problem getting machine to automatically obtain IP address - eventually had to do it using manual settings - any ideas why a machine will not obtain an IP address automatically

Check your services (control panel - admin. tools), have you got DHCP Client on automatic?

No was disabled - guess settign on auto will fix that issue then!

Thanks a million
