How would i go about checking if DHPC is disabled in IPv4?
You can check if DHCP is enabled at the same place you typed in the static IP. Right click the adaptor, go to properties, go down to IPv4, click the properties button and make sure that DHCP is enabled.
If DHCP isn't working then you should check in Windows services "run box type services.msc" to make sure that DHCP client is enabled along with the other networking services.
