Notes: The default configuration for Windows PCs (client computers) is that of automatic DHCP configuration. As soon as a Windows PC is powered on, it searches for DHCP server to provide IP parameters. If a PC is configured with static IP settings, then it will take precedence over DHCP server, and automatic configuration is not activated.
