what exactly is it you are running as a DHCP server? If you are using a modem that does not have a DHCP server function then each PC will be using it's own DHCP pool and asigning it's own IP unless told otherwise.

If you can't get the DHCP to re-assign you an available IP from the scope using the method True Blue suggests you could ellect to use a static IP.

To set a static IP right click on the connection, and go to properties. Highlight TCP/IP and click properties again. Chance the settings to "Use the following IP Address". Put in the IP address that you want to use in the same scope as the Modem and use the same subnet mask for everything. Set the default gateway to the IP of the modem. Set Primary DNS to the IP of the modem and secondary can stay blank, or, if you know one of the DNS server IP addresses of your ISP you can put that in. Click on apply and then ok back to the connections window. Disable and enable the connection and all should be well with the world.

Hope this helps
