Your Windows client cant speak to other OSs will try and get the last IP that it had.

-Seth

Ahhh so this is a feature of windows, rather then pfSense.

Thanks,
Adam

It should be complete now.

As Seth mentioned, a DHCP client can express a preference for an IP. It may not get it, but it can try.

I'm not sure, but you can try to see if forcing an "ifconfig /release *" then "ifconfig /renew *" from the command prompt will make it pull a new IP after deleting the lease.
