I have set the ip lease time 10 minute in my DHCP settings. So after each 5 minutes I'm getting the renewal message just for my laptop. I want to get this renewal message for each device in my network. Is there any way so that I can get message/packet for all devices in the network?

I always use a configurable switch for this purpose. Port 8 on the switch is configured to send all packets on this port - here I attach my laptop running wireshark. Now it is just to place the switch on the cable i want to "tap - the cable to the DHCP-server.

Check the manual on capture setup. In a switched environment, you can only see frames which the switch delivers to your laptop, which is limited to frames whose destination MAC address is the one of your laptop, or a multicast or broadcast one, or a unicast one of a device which has not responded yet. While DHCPDISCOVERY messages are sent to broadcast address, DHCPREQUEST are not, and lease renewal is done using DHCPREQUEST (the device selectively contacts only the DHCP server from which it got the lease).
