Renewing a DHCP lease
Authored by: chymb on Jan 02, '13 05:23:40PM

I've added this as a separate hint since this one is so old now, but the command:

echo "add State:/Network/Interface/en0/RefreshConfiguration temporary" | sudo scutil

renews the lease in the same way as the System Preference Pane.
It works on 10.4+ (it may work on <10.4 but I don't have one to check)
