How do I clear and re-execute a dhcp request
IPCONFIG /RELEASE (clears any net info gained through DHCP)
IPCONFIG /RENEW (performs a new dhcp request)
I ask this because I switch between 2 different dhcp network and usually don't turn the laptop off when going from 1 to the other. Its only like a 5 minute walk. So does slack have a similar way to do this, I tried reading the man page on dhcpd but no matter what I do I just get a list of copyright information or something similar. Not to mention there are no switches listed in the man page to release or renew a new dhcp request.

Run one of these on your interface (assuming eth0 in the examples):
dhclient eth0 dhcpcd eth0 pump eth0"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
