set a static IP address and you should be good.
the article linked above is how to ask the DHCP server for a valid IP address. You do not have to live with a dynamic IP address.
go to a command prompt and ipconfig after you have fixed it. make note of the numbers, write them down.
in control panel open the network and sharing center or whatever 10 calls it and look for the adapter properties. find the IPV4 highlight it and click on properties. you will want to copy the ip address, subnet mask and default gateway from the ipconfig to the boxes here. once all three have been setup click apply.
When you reboot now instead of asking what the IP address is and failing like every previous boot, it will have the address from the get go.
