I have never had to pull a new IP on the lappy. When I try now, it says it can't because I am not connected to the iternet. When I boot up the laptop, and try to connect to my secure wireless connection I get the message "acquiring network address", and it just hangs up there. I never connect. This has just started since I put on a new modem last night... Any more suggestions?

Re: can't connect with my router
This can often be an issue with security encryption. There may be a wrong key entered or the client adaptor does not support the encryption used. To try and solve this first change the SSID on your wireless router (get access http://192.168.0.1 user=admin pass= blank (no pass) (default)) so your laptop will be forced to create a new profile. Then set security to basic WEP 64bit and try to connect again.
Update the wireless adaptors drivers. If you have any third party Firewalls, try and temporarily disable them to make sure they aren't blocking it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This error comes when there is same ip address in 2 computers. So make sure in networks there are not same ip address. You can also solve this issue with DHCP . Enable DHCP in router. For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. . Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Then set "ip get automatic " in network adapter property. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
ask you ISP what are the IP address and DNS server address that you need to feed in the properties setting of the TCP/IP setting in the Network Connection wizard in Control Panel
without these the connection will not work
What is the ip address you got from the 2wire router. ??
Try release and renew for new ip. Clear the cache and temporary internet files, and then try pinging the router's gateway ip and check . If pinging. then ping any website's ip address. if successful then try going online. Else you need to power off and power on your router and then try again.
If the router is not assigning an IP then you are probably not actually connecting to the network. Try disabling your wireless security on the router and see if they connect. If they do then you know the problem lies in that direction.
The laptop CAN NOT have the same IP address of the desktop because is another station. The IP address is generated automatically from your wireless router, one different for each computer that you have on the network.
For that reason you have to renew the ip on your laptop.

What do you mean new IP address, you are trying to connect to the router, or are you trying to connect to the internet? If you are trying to do this from your PC, check if you have DHCP enabled. Go to [Start > Settings> Network Connections] Then right click on Local Area Connection and select properties. Then on the list select TCP/IP and select the properties button. Then the window comes up you should have obtain IP address automatically radio button selected, if not do it and hit Ok then ok on the next window Hope that helps, Lee
I would set the new wireless router to have a static ip address on the same subnet as the first router. Then set the DNS and Default Gateway the same as the first router. When computers connect they should pick up an ip from the first router.
Hi, I have found a link that may help you set up your system.
You don't say what the setup error is? I think the "Help Link URL" will show ya how to reset the router, so do that.. set up the SSID and Channel and, then go to the lappy & set up your Wifi for "Client"mode, as ya should have set up ya Router as an "Access Point" ensure that is all set up correctly. below is a link to a program Wireless Mon, install this on the Lappy, and use it to see if your "Wifi Router" is actualy transmitting etc...and prove ya wifi in lappy is OK..
