well i think isp is not the issue because as a user open their pc the network is acquiring in the middle of it their will be an exclamation point means limited connection . but once you refresh to get ip it take a minute to get IP address . second very slow in network

Your boss needs to hire a network specialist, sounds like really bad management is causing the majority of the issues....

With that said, I too am confused as to exactly what your problems are but renewing IPs is a DHCP issue. Does somebody manage the DHCP server or is this all done on an integrated router (like something people use at home)? If your network is running fiber I'd imagine you have a dedicated DHCP server, if not, that could be the problem right there. A basic home router isn't designed for an enterprise network so depending on how big the network is it could be running out of memory which would cause it to lag with handing out new IPs, or it could be running out of IPs as well which is probably the more likely issue.

What is the size of this network? How many PCs? Servers? Switches? Brand of switches? Are you using any type of network monitoring software so you can monitor your link speeds?
