Question about Televison & Video
I have two computers at home. I set up a wireless router for my first one that is directly connected to the phone line so I can avoid the hassle of having to install extension cables to my other pc (one is in the den while the other is in a bedroom).
I have a D-Link DIR-300 Wireless-G router and a DWA-110 Wireless-G USB adapter.
I configured a WPA encryption for my wireless network.
Anyway, the network was fine and perfectly functioning until a while back, when system32 files were accidentally deleted from the bedroom pc by one of its users, and it had to be reformatted and all drivers reinstalled.
Once that was done, I tried adding the bedroom pc back into my wireless network. This time around, even though I followed the same steps I took the first time, and the device manager and the D-Link utility itself was telling me everything was working, whenever I activated the wireless connection for the bedroom PC, it tries to connect but gets stuck at 'Acquiring Network Address', and later has to disconnect and try again.
So far, I have tried reinstalling the USB adapter, and removing the bedroom pc from then reconnecting it back into the wireless network.
Is there anything I missed about reinstallment of the adapter? Is this a software or hardware problem? How can I best solve this problem?
Thanks in advance.

Same here -- third time was charm on my notebook running Win XP MCE. Strangely, I followed the same instructions (to the "T") each time, so I don't know what made the third install work. What I found is "key" is that "XTV2.0" shows up under "Imaging devices" in Device Manager (My Computer -> System Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager). I attempted installing on a couple other Windows XP machines, and so far no dice. I'll investigate further to see if I can determine the root cause and a solution. Surely more people have encountered this problem?! The XTV2.0 is the same adapter that's branded under other names -- mine is StarTech.com USB2TVTUNER, which I bought from Dell.

Check and see if this setup guide matches your device?
If it does we can probably search for more information.
Did you configure your router using WEP, WPA security (using passphrases) on your router?
Did you enable MAC address checking on your router?

What I believe here is you are not typing in the pass-phrase(wireless password) correctly.
Go to 192.168.1.1 log on to the router ,in wireless section you will find the pass phrase,, create a new one and then try to connect.

It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.
Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.
