How does a computer on the network get its IP address?

It can either be assigned statically (the network manager assigns them) or can be assigned dynamically via Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP). In the latter, there will be a server that "leases" an address to the workstation for a predefined period of time. The address will be from a predefined range.
