    Windows 10 Pro Ethernet Adapter Does Not Retain DHCP Settings

    The laptop computer is attached to a corporate domain. The DNS servers are providing DHCP settings. After logging onto the network, there is NO IPV4 address assigned despite DHCP enabled. Using ipconfig command, the setting is an obscure IP address Subnet Using the Device Manager I disable the adapater, perform a scan, then DHCP IP settings are set correctly.

    Search on Google says:
    It's a IPv4 link local address, as defined in rfc3927. Usually ZeroConfig/Bonjour/mdns et al enabled boxes are setup to have IPv4 ll address to enable (home) networking without the presence of an DHCP or unicast DNS server.

    How does one kill this?

    Bonjour usually causes a lot of networking issues. If you have it, try uninstalling it.
