    Is there a way to tell what device is providing DHCP on my network?
    Something out there is proving DHCP and it is providing bogus DNS entries.
    I need to either kill that device or plug in the appropriate DNS entries but
    I can't even figure out what device it is.

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Thanks,
    Justin

    Hi Justin,

    From a workstation that is receiving the wrong IP, run ipconfig /all (Or
    winipcfg from 9x) and check the DHCP server. Use nbtstat -a to identify the
    machine name and who is currently logged on to it. Alternatively use the
    dhcploc.exe utility from the NT Resource Kit.
