An IP address conflict wouldnt show the "limited connectivity" error message. Unless he has multiple DHCP servers it shouldnt be possible to get a conflict unless he configured a client for a static address within the DHCP range. The DHCPOFFER reply includes the MAC address of the client that sent the discover packets.

The limited connectivity could indicate an IP address address conflict as the adapter would have a 169.x.x.x address. This would either be due to a static IP on the PC or multiple DHCP servers. Running ipconfig /all when the PC is working and not working would confirm this
