Windows 7: DHCP is disabled but IP address is dynamic?

DHCP is disabled but IP address is dynamic?

So I've been looking through the forums for the last few hours trying to figure out what my computer's deal is. My network is set to automatically set an IP, and this has worked semi-okay for the past few days. It disconnects a lot but I can usually go to the Command Prompt and then release and renew my IP, which would normally fix it. So I did that today, only that time it said something about being unable to contact the DHCP server. So I then typed in ipconfig /ALL and it said the DHCP isn't enabled. I tried it again just recently, but instead I get a message saying that the RCP server is unavailable, but the ipconfig /ALL prompt still says the DHCP isn't enabled. So now I'm stuck using my phone to find solutions for this. If anyone has any idea to fix this, please please let me know, I've been looking for a working solution for hours...
