The DHCP service can't connect to the the service that provides DHCP for you. In most cases that I've seen, this is due to settings in the Local Area Connection on your computer - or with the router that you're using.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

could also be you're on dial up and there is no DHCP server available.

Background on DHCP (simplified)
in order to be on the internet your computer needs an address, there are 2 ways to get this address.
1. Input it yourself (static IP)
2. Get it from another computer (DHCP server)
if you have set your computer up for dhcp (which is the default) and there is no dhcp server available you will get what is called an APIPA address.

now, depending on how you connect to the net this could mean everything or this could mean nothing.

If dial-up. it means nothing, don't worry about it.
If broadband. you may have some work ahead of you, it's not too hard but I don't want to confuse you quite yet.

let us know how you connect to the internet.
