Question about 2wire (1000-000005-002) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
This could be caused by a couple of software issues (possibly a faulty hardware to, but lets not worry about that for now).
1. Try resetting the router by pulling the power plug out for 30 seconds and plug it back in.
2. You have a software firewall on your PC that is interfering with getting a DHCP address. Disable any firewalls and try again.
3. Your router (for whatever reason) is no longer giving out DHCP addresses to your PC. It may be hard to configure without an address too, so you may have to reset the router to factory defaults but holding the 'reset' button on the router for 10 or more seconds. It should then go back to factory defaults and the DHCP should be back on. You will have to re-enter any custom settings you used when originally setting it up.

Do you have DHCP enabled on your PC? Sounds like you are not getting the IP address.
