    Hello,

    How can I find the IP address for the DHCP server my Nexus One is attached to?

    I am having a dual-DHCP server conflict but I do not know what the second server is and I do not know how to find the DHCP server IP address on my android phone.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    I'm placed your question in the Nexus One forums for you.

    i don't think you can ,i don't know of any way in any phone to find out the automatic address that it gets from the router.

    there is a way to enter it manually you know ..

    If you use the terminal app, you can issue an 'arp -a' to list the full arp table. If you perform this IMMEDIATELY after a dhcp offer, the server that gave the offer *should* be the only IP in the list.

    There's a free app Network Info II that will provide DHCP server and lease details (amongst many other things) - highly useful tool to have for diagnostics.
