The default setting for network adapters in Windows is automatic IP address obtaining, but if you change this setting, you can restore it as shown below.
In Windows 7, go to Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center and click 'Local Area Connection'.
In Windows 10, click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings.
In the list of network connections that opens, select the connection that you are using to connect to your ISP (wireless or LAN). Double-click on the connection.
In the new window, click on the 'Properties' button.
Select 'IP version 4 (TCP/IPv4)' and click 'Properties'. In the Protocol Properties window, select 'Obtain an IP address automatically' to automatically assign a dynamic IP address from the router (where the DHCP server is turned on) to the computer's network adapter.
If necessary, you can manually specify a static IP address (select 'Use the following IP address' and enter the IP address and mask in the 'IP address' and 'Subnet mask' fields, respectively).
I hope this is helpful!
