  • This does not help. I have tried running dhclient on linux pc and it works fine there. But there is no dhclient for android what I have is dhcpcd. which fails always. Commented Nov 24, 2011 at 8:28

1 Answer 1


enable the ethernet port and then use setprop command to enable dhcp. Then start dhcp client.

  • Could you edit and clarify which properties should be set to enable DHCP?
