Shows 100% signal strength but does not connect to internet..(no IP address assigned)

I have installed the driver on to my W2K box. The system-tray icon shows connect to: a SSID. And the detailed connection shows the signal strength as 100% but no IP address was assigned (and so does not connect to internet). I am not able to figure out whats wrong with it. Note, the LED indicator did not lite at all. I also tried the same unit on laptop(XP). After installing the driver and connected the unit, the unit was not even recognized as connected! Any help? Thanks, Raja.

    Thanks Silverdragon, I suspected it when the
    green indicator did not lit. I started looking
    at the reviews of this piece, not so good!
    I should have checked the reviews before I
    purchased it.

Can't connect to server. Error code 52230 comes up.

Here are some troubleshooting ideas:

Error Code: 52230
Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: Your router or Internet Service Provider is having difficulty assigning a DNS or IP address to the Wii.
How to fix: Manually assign an IP address and DNS to the Wii.

The address below will show you how to manually assign an IP

Other suggestions:
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

  • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console.
  • What to Do:
    • Check the location and distance of your wireless router.
      The further a device is from your wireless router, the weaker it's signal strength will be. If your wireless signal has to pass through any walls or floors, this will also weaken the wireless signal strength. Move the router to a central location within your home and as close to your system as possible.
      Additionally, if your router is on the floor, moving it to a higher location can improve the signal strength.

    • Change the wireless channel your router is broadcasting on.
      Wireless routers can broadcast on a variety of channels. Sometimes a specific wireless channel may experience interference from other devices and routers nearby. How to

    • Move any metal objects or electronic devices away from your Nintendo system and wireless router.

Windows xp cannot connect to internet

Check the tray at foot of page to see if it is "searching for IP address" continuously, if so, then go into network settings and make sure you have "find IP address automatically" selected.

What are the static ip for leased lines

You have not provided enough information to answer this definatively. However, one possible answer exists, if this relates to leased lines from a service provider or telephone company. Leased lines involve a physical connection and a network layer logical connection. At the physical layer, there are no assigned IP addresses, just devices that transform analog to digital signals (and vice versa).. The installation person should have checked signal conductivity as part of the service. The next layer up (TCP/IP), has IP addresses, either given to you on some paperwork, or via dynamic IP Address assignment request. If the service promises a static IP address, then your paperwork (for example, setup instructions) contains any access authentication (required); a group of 4 or 6 numbers, separated by periods; and at least a 2nd set of 4/6 numbers designated as your default route IP. Otherwise, you may have to turn on DHCP and let your external router port retrieve your assigned (static) IP address from the network device at the other end of your network connection. The returned IP address is your assigned static IP address. Just make sure it is not 10.x.x.x, or 127.0.x.x, or 192.168.x.x. Those address ranges are not routable in the larger Internet space.

I am unable to connect to the internet using a wireless connection (signal strength good) When I use the repair wizzard I get a message telling me unable to renew IO address

If the Wi-Fi access point is a DHCP enable router, you should be able to browse the internet as DNS address will be automatically fixed in the Router firmware.

to check what IP address is assigned and more information on your wireless adapter

go to Command prompt by typing "cmd" in RUN.

type "ipconfig /all" without the quote.

you should be able to see IP address of your wireless network adapter plus default gateway and DNS address which are much needed in order to have internet access.

you can still assigned IP address etc manually.

Go to "Control panel"
Click on "Network and Sharing Center"
Click on "Change Adapter setting"
Now, right click on the wireless adapter and select "Properties"
Select "Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and "Properties"

In General tabs,select the radio button with " use the following IP address"

IP address : 192.168.1.x    (if the router IP address is 192.168.1.y)
                                        x=1 to 254, y=1 to 254 but x should not be                                           equal to y )
Subnet Mask :

Default gateway : 192.168.1.y ( IP address of the Wireless access point)

Preferred DNS address : Ask the Internet service provider

Alternate DNS address : Ask the Internet service provider

Click "OK" twice.

Your Internet should work now.

I formatted my system and reinstalled Win XP on it, but now I could not use wireless to connect with internet

Make sure you have Wireless network adapter driver installed.

Manually assigned IP address and DNS address as earlier (if your IP setting is not automatically assigned by DHCP server).

If you are using router set your Router IP address as your Default Gateway Address.

If you are using Internet through a Proxy Server then Open "Internet Explorer ",
Click "Tools",
Click "Internet options",
click on tab called "Connection",
Click "Lan settings" Button.
Remove "Automatically detect settings".
Tick "use a proxy server for your LAN....."
Type the IP address of your Proxy Server and the port no.

It will work.

Paradyne 6218-12-200 won't connect all computers

A public IP address is usually assigned to the WAN port (outside/public side), which is how your router is conected to your Internet provider service.

A private IP is always assigned to the private network side (LAN = Inside). Unless you are hard coding your IP addressing on each of your devices, you will need to have DHCP enabled in your router with enough user IPs for your devices (more than 1).
