"acquiring network address" problem

I purchased this Netgear router for my parents and installed it to their desktop computer well over a year ago. Since then, I have logged on to the internet numerous times on my laptop without the need to enter their password more than that first time. Today, however, altho i accessed the web on THEIR computer, i was required to enter their password on my laptop (trying to remember that was a challenge in itself!) and cannot get beyond the ACQUIRING NETWORK ADDRESS message. I have made numerous attempts to get a connection by rebooting the modem, router, computer, etc. to no avail. PLEASE HELP??? This is soooooo infuriating!! Thx much!

The password might have been changed that's why you keep getting "acquiring network address", the password is incorrect. What you can do is just reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of it, press and hold it down for 10 seconds then release, unplug the power now for 10 seconds then plug it back in. That will disable the wireless password, just re-enable it.

Problem connectiong to DHCP server and acquiring a network address from router. using netgear router and linksys adapter. ICS


Hi There,

Your router, is it wireless?... anyway take a look at the security settings. I think that you have setup up your security setting with a wep key. If so than you need to enter a pass work into your computer to access the router for it to assign a IP address.

Let me know if you need more help.

Regards,

Philip

Netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address


Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same

Netgear usb adapter will not acquire ip address from router


Most laptops have a wireless card built in them and if you have one you should try using that instead and form past experiences USB adapters don't generally work on laptops in which case if you laptop has the slot for it you should buy a card like this http://www.netgear.com/Products/Adapters/SuperGWirelessAdapters/WG511T.aspx

Acquiring Address Problem


you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

Laptop won't recognize the network, No installation CD, other solutions?


This sounds like you have either WEP or WPA enable on the network you are trying to connect too. Are you connecting through a wireless network? If not try adding a passphrase using WPA-TKIP and see if that helps.
