    What happen if DHCP lease expires when the PC is disconnected from the network ?


      When DHCP lease expires when the PC is currently disconnected from the network, and then I connect it to the network,

      does it continue to use that old IP address while trying to get a new address, or does it empty the IP address configuration and cannot communicate with any other hosts until it gets the new IP address?
