DHCPAddressPrinter not responding


I am using an ethernet shield with UNO R3 board. And i’m new to this. When i give the mac address as on the shield sticker, and upload the DHCPAddressPrinter, it does not show anything on the serial monitor.

Please help. Here is my code:

DHCP-based IP printer

This sketch uses the DHCP extensions to the Ethernet library
to get an IP address via DHCP and print the address obtained.
using an Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield.

Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13

#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

// Enter a MAC address for your controller below.
// Newer Ethernet shields have a MAC address printed on a sticker on the shield
byte mac = {
0x90, 0xA2, 0xDA, 0x10, 0x6C, 0xB6

// Initialize the Ethernet client library
// with the IP address and port of the server
// that you want to connect to (port 80 is default for HTTP):
EthernetClient client;

void setup() {
// Open serial communications and wait for port to open:
// this check is only needed on the Leonardo:
while (!Serial) {
; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB port only

// start the Ethernet connection:
if (Ethernet.begin(mac) == 0) {
Serial.println(“Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP”);
// no point in carrying on, so do nothing forevermore:
for (;:wink:
// print your local IP address:

void loop() {

switch (Ethernet.maintain())
case 1:
//renewed fail
Serial.println(“Error: renewed fail”);

case 2:
//renewed success
Serial.println(“Renewed success”);

//print your local IP address:

case 3:
//rebind fail
Serial.println(“Error: rebind fail”);

case 4:
//rebind success
Serial.println(“Rebind success”);

//print your local IP address:

//nothing happened


void printIPAddress()
Serial.print(“My IP address: “);
for (byte thisByte = 0; thisByte < 4; thisByte++) {
// print the value of each byte of the IP address:
Serial.print(Ethernet.localIP()[thisByte], DEC);


Are you using a w5100 based shield? Is the shield connected to a DHCP server? If the DHCP fails, it will take about two minutes to return fail.

It is an ethernet shield 2.

W5500 with internal 32K buffer

You need another library. Eventually, the Arduno crew will update the library included with the IDE, but so far, no.

This is the current library from Wiznet. Download and unpack it. Use the one in the Arduino IDE V1.5.x folder. https://github.com/Wiznet/WIZ_Ethernet_Library
