HOWTO - release your IP

It sucks, you were on the web, the computer went down without warning because you have a lousy battery, now you have it plugged in again but it seems like you can't get on the AP or onto the internet because someone “stole your IP” while you were away, the solution could be as simple as releasing the IP assigned to your dhcp server/wireless AP.

In Linux this is very easily done - Simply write the command: “sudo dhclient -r” once the IP is released write “sudo dhclient”, your system should then request an IP from the DHCP server and you should be surfing again in a breeze.
