why does Win7 say DHCP enabled in 2 place, but not in other 2 places?

P: 785
Internet access at Dunn Bros.:
1) Internet works BUT {!} Shield shows.
2) Ran CMD stuff and it says that Dunn Bros. DHCP is NOT enabled and TCP is NOT enabled.
3) Right click and viewing status of Dunn Bros connection says it IS ENABLED.
4) My computer, when I look at the control panel version of dhcp and tcp, says it is enabled.

Why is MS so silly as to have such inconsistency?
I DID turn off Firewall to see if that would change anything, however that did not.
I use McAfee.

I can not give you the CMD file because I do not know how to do that. I read how, but lost the link to that. Sorry! (forgot how to copy and paste using terminal on windows.)
However, it says:

Had Disabled IPv6 AND reset Internet Explorer. (Solved the internet connectitivity issue message I got that was more common in 2008.)
Firewall is now on again.

Oh yes, the CMD stuff was from the Tunnel adapter isatap.DBrothers

Technically not solved, but isn't causing any issues anymore, so don't know what to say. Everyone is scratching their heads over this one, so I'm considering this matter closed (and writing this so that I know I've wiped it off my plate.) Thanks!
