Alternatively open up COmputer Management, then Device Manager, then find your network card and open Properties. Click the Advanced tab and locate the Locally Administered Address Property. Enter one to the right. 12 Characters in Hex. This will make the DHCP server think you are someone else and give you a new IP address.

*LANDMINE WARNING. When you do this you are potentially creating a conflict with other people who have done the same thing. You cannot conflict with other devices who are still using the burned in address but you could conflict with those who keyed in their address. Do not use 9402 9404 9406 as this is my address!

OKOK Just kidding on the address, that one's not valid!

Anybody know the command needed to flush my PC's network card so that I
get a new IP address?

IPCONFIG does not work. Hard coding an IP address does not work. A
restore does not work. I'm stumped.
