Subject: Re: How to force a new IP address from DHCP?

How about this:

Bring up the machine in question, let it register and obtain the bad IP.
Shut down the machine without unregistering it.
Plug in a cheap Linksys router, or some similar box, connect the PC to
the router and rerun the DHCP registration.  This should register the
MAC of the router and give it a different IP.    Of course now, the PC
will be behind a NAT firewall, but I wouldn't think that should present
a problem in most scenarios.
