network failure or insufficient access

By millermv ·
Periodically when troubleshooting dhcp issues in Windows 2000, I will come across an instance where the computer has an ip of 0.0.0.0 and attempts to renew the ip result in an error that reads: Unexpected network failure or insufficient access. Could anybody give me an idea of what could cause this type of issue and how to fix it? Thanks,

I have seen this when a scope is full in DHCP, have you checked to make sure there are no RAS connections filling spaces? That's a major problem for me.....

If the case is that the scope is full then there's a major problem here. The service that I was discussing is a high speed internet service with no ras service. All users have to connect through a cable modem. What I'd like to know is why does Windows not generate an APIPA 169.254 ip rather than no ip at all. That would indicate to me a problem in the OS, Don't you think?
