I never figured this error would be such a pain to figure out and technically nothing is broken but it is really annoying.

My computer says it is trying to acquire an ip address, but it already has one. The internet works fine and everything is working, but the acquiring ip will not go away.

Anyone have some ideas on how to make it show it is connected?

Disable the connection then re-enable it.
