This letter describes the current mechanism for IP address configuration in the wireless Internet and examines its drawbacks, and suggests a new mechanism of address configuration which provides a reduced message exchange for address configuration in the wireless Internet over the current 4-way message exchange when performing address configuration through DHCP. Analytic performance evaluation and comparison have shown that the proposed mechanism is faster in terms of delay than the existing mechanism including reduced packet loss when in motion.
