I haven't tried releasing the ip from windows, which I will try and let you
know. As I have heard from other users of the ISP it seems the ISP have
mis-configured the dhcp server and other users are also facing the same
problem. They have tried mailing the customer care, but their customer care
is shit and there is no way I could make the ISP change the configuration.
And I don't have the option of going for another ISP either.  So the only
way is to pose as a windows machine and get connected.
