I tested again, using the recomendation from Richard. Still the same
result, this is the output of ipconfig /renew on the ethernet:

Adaptador de Ethernet Conexión de área local:

   Sufijo DNS específico para la conexión. . :
   Dirección IPv4 de configuración automática:
   Máscara de subred . . . . . . . . . . . . : 
   Puerta de enlace predeterminada . . . . . :

And @Jeff, I tried from the side of the server the same that you suggest
me. There isn't any query to the server.
Now I'm downloading Wireshark for the same test on the client side.
