Thanks Cutty, I will have a look on the board and search for an replacement. The IC should not be too expensive.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE,
I thought about the IC but I also I thought that freezing the station would at least do something.
So I froze the station, dried it quickly to prevent buildup of dew and once there was no dew depositing on the station I hooked it to power.
The display was stills showing -70C (an error as my freezer is not that good) but it connected.

Disabled DHCP on the board side and allocated an fixed IP to both the board and router side.
I hope this redneck type of fix will hold until I have the time to tinker with the board.

So in the end the DHCP error was on the station side. The important thing is that the mystery was solved even if I would not recommend anyone to freeze their station as an temporary fix.
Will let you know how long this fix will hold.
Stations: 960
