Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
I am trying to connect to wireless in my new apartment.
I usually never have problems, but now I am. (Maybe bc it's a different internet provider than i've had in the past?)
I've entered my network key and password and it seems like it's connecting but it isn't. Under Wireless Network Connection Status, under the General Tab it says: Status: Acquiring Network Address. And under the Support Tab it says: Address: Invalid IP address.
I've gone to Properties>Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). It was originally on "Obtain IP address automatically". I tried switching it to the IP address that my roommate's computer has listed. But that didn't work either so I'm back to automatic IP.
I have Microsoft Windows XP. Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini DCI Card (if that helps.)
Reset the modem and the wireless router by powering them off for 30-60 seconds, then plug power back in. Wait a minute or so for the devices to reset then go to the PC and try to connect again
