Windows 7: How to find out DHCP lease time remaining ?

How to find out DHCP lease time remaining ?

Hello,


I'm on ADSL, and the provider automatically renews the IP every 4 days. Under Win XP, I simply had to click on the network icon in taskbar (lower right corner) and the window showed me since how long I had been connected (and thus if there was a risk of getting disconnected soon or not).

How can I easily get to the same info under Win7 ? (Win7 Ultimate x64)

By "easily", I mean without having to use cmd > ipconfig all


Many thanks in advance.

Unsure what you are trying to accomplish. If your ISP assigns you a 4 day lease (96 hours), when your computer first boots it will pull an IP address and it's yours for 96 hours. At the 1/2 way point (48 hours), your computer will request to renew that IP again. Since the DHCP server has it assigned to you, it will update it's record and it's yours again for another 96 hours. And at the 1/2 way point, the process will repeat. your computer should attempt at 1/2 intervals to keep renewing that same IP.

You should not get disconnected and about 99% of the time, you should always be able to renew the same IP address.
