    Basic question, where and what is you're DHCP server, if you don't know, set the IP manually, together with the subnet and gateway

    The point is......have you got DHCP enabled on your router....error messages generally point you in the direction of the error, if it says it can't reach your DHCP server, then the problem is with the DHCP server. In your case, the router.
