On the Windows box, run "winipcfg".  This will show you the IP address it
has on different interfaces, and will allow you to request a DHCP lease
renewal manually.

I've never had a problem with getting Windows to pick up a DHCP address
though (well, except when I had shut down the DHCP server ;-).  So I
probably won't be much good as far as debugging it.

 If you have too many special cases, you are doing it wrong.
