  • What is the device?
    Is this a home network or domain network?

  • Also, this question should probably go in a different category - the answers to MacHelp-​ 's questions would likely help to choose the category / categories.

    • What makes you believe that a DHCP service would be running on your NIC?
    • Is your NIC active of passive?
    • Which active NIC model do you have?
    • How many DHCP servers do you have running in your network for how many NICs in your network?
    • What's the relation between the different DHCP servers on your network?

    I've never seen a NIC running a DHCP service. And although I implemented active NICs in the past (several decades ago), I never implemented DHCP service on such active devices. And if the NIC isn't an active model, it will not be able to run a DHCP service nor to disable such an internal service of its firmware. And even if it would be as you claim, the manual should tell you how to proceed, probably a cold restart or warm restart of the NIC.

    Most NICs today are passive and hence unable to run DHCP on the NIC. In such cases, DHCP would run on the host / appliance, not on the passive NIC.

  • Yeah this question needs more context.  What is the issue that is actually happening?  Does your device fail to get an IP address when you connect to the network?
