DHCP error on chromebook

we recently bought 2x new Chromebooks for homeschooling

initially, they seemed to work well, however, we are finding that they now frequently

1. fall over mid-lesson - unclear whether this is the website the school are using, or router related, but doesn't seem to happen on other devices so latter?

2. break the wfirii connection (temporarily) to other devices when logged on necessitating a relog on to wifii by other devices used elsewhere

3. completely lose all wifii connection and won't log back on to wifii at all.. at which point we get a DHCP error message

spent HOURS on this already and at wits' end. not very tech savvy so answers need to be idiot proof please. Please help!!

Re: DHCP error on chromebook

Wi-fi can be a bit rubbish.  When it does work, have you downloaded any updates?

Is it possible for you to use wired (ethernet) connections?  You  can get 5m CAT5e cables in Poundland or OneBelow that will do the job.

Re: DHCP error on chromebook

Fix it by getting your own wireless router with 1Gb ports and use the hub in modem mode.
