Windows 7: Dynamic IP's

Dynamic IP's

Alright, I'm about to end up tearing my hair out over this. I'm trying to get my IP to refresh, so I can get a new one. Doing it on Windows XP was easy enough. But for the life of me, I cannot get this dang thing to work. Each time I try

Code:
ipconfig /release

OR 

ipconfig /renew
It gives me a stupid error. I've been to every corner of the internet trying to figure out what in the world I'm supposed to do. Now I'm not exactly super-savvy with this stuff, but I do know that everything I've tried so far should work. I know I have a dynamic IP address, checked that myself and called to find out. But even so, I always have the same one.

So. Does anyone, at all, know how to get a dynamic IP address to change, or to use the above codes to change it? Or something else? Tearing out my hair here...

EDIT: The errors I get:

Code:
C:\>ipconfig /release

Windows IP Configuration

An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 : The sy
stem cannot find the file specified.



C:\>ipconfig /renew

Windows IP Configuration

An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 : The sy
stem cannot find the file specified.
Used most of these, none seem to work: How to change (Dynamic) IP address in Windows 7 or Vista?

According to the error you are receiving, you either do not have a NIC (network interface card) or you dont have the drivers installed. NOTE the "Loopback Pseudo-Interface" part of the error...

What does Device Manager show for Network devices???

maybe you do this step. check your connected cable UTP if you use PC and connect by UTP cable.
then see the status is connected or not.

if still can't so i guest the LAN card is broken, try the other card..

ryo... from his error message the PC isnt seeing the NIC. Either a bad NIC or bad/incorrect/nonexistant driver.

Does anyone actually use dynamic volumes?
I've been reading up on dynamic volumes, and while they are interesting, I wonder if they are actually used in the real world, and if so, more by enterprises than individuals? What's your experience, and do you see big advantages to them? Thanks.

Static AND Dynamic IP?
Is there a way that I can have Windows auto configure my IP settings, so that when I'm connected to my home network, it uses the static iP settings I have, but when I'm at school or anywhere else, switch back to dynamic? Normally I have to go into the settings and turn it on and off every time.
