The dhclient command can release your computer’s IP address and get a new one from your DHCP server.

dhclient is generated by NetworkManager.

dhclient.conf is located in /etc/dhcp.

This requires root permissions, so use sudo.

Run dhclient with no options to get a new IP address or use the -r switch to release your current IP address.

sudo dhclient -r
sudo dhclient
